Regulators, politicians and customers seem to be reaching a consensus. The future of electricity will have a net zero, and eventually, real zero carbon content. Net zero or real zero energy by 2050 has dramatic implications on the current planning, design, operations and maintenance of the electric transmission and distribution (T&D) grid that delivers that energy.

Net zero energy is defined as “the generation of electricity from non-carbon generating resources like nuclear, hydro, wind and solar with allowances for government approved off-sets and credits versus real zero energy which does not include the theoretically based off-sets and credits.

This panel will discuss their utility’s efforts to build a safe, reliable, resilient and affordable grid that will deliver real zero electricity.
