Andy Wappler will address ‘New energy technologies: how the smart grid will impact our community’ at the Chapter 4 International Right of Way Association (IRWA) lunch meeting to be held in the PSE Auditorium on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Andy will take a look at the rapidly changing landscape in energy technology and how the emergence of new ways of making and using energy will affect how energy projects are sited and permitted. Andy will also discuss what we are seeing in renewable energy, batteries, AMI and customer expectations and how that will (or won’t!) change the challenges of siting new projects in an increasingly high-density, fast-growing community.
