Abstract / Description: 

Electric utilities across the U.S. are one of the most important players in the nation's efforts to transition to carbon-free electricity and net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. As of September 2021, seventy-two percent of customer accounts in the U.S. are served by an electric utility with a 100 percent carbon-reduction target. Utilities and their customers are deploying clean energy and energy efficiency at a record pace in parallel with retiring fossil fuel plants. This webinar will feature three female CEOs of utilities that are leading the way per the Smart Electric Power Alliance's 2021 "Utility Transformation Challenge". The webinar will focus on the importance of cultural change and deep engagement with stakeholders and partners to reach ambitious carbon-reduction goals.
