The presentation will discuss:

  • How to continue to provide reliable services to a populace that does not fully appreciate the value, and understand the complexities of the work we do?
  • How do we continue to provide affordable electricity under the weight of emerging state and federal regulations, calls to adapt to a changing climate, and the need to react to emergent natural and human-induced threats?
  • Can we innovate our way to the development and delivery of affordable, resilient electricity in a sustainable manner?
  • We will explore the current state of electricity generation in North Carolina, the use of technology to meet environmental obligations, and the challenges of integrating renewables into the generation portfolio.
