Virtual Power Plants Are Unlocking Renewable Energy for Low-to-Moderate-Income Communities

Mar 9, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

As we electrify the grid and accelerate the transition to clean energy, it must be accessible and affordable for all. In this fireside conversation moderated by Maria Gallucci of Canary Media, we'll discuss the role of virtual power plant (VPP) technologies in historically underserved areas. Learn what constitutes a VPP, the barriers preventing adoption, and how VPPs provide a pathway for affordable clean energy. The session will offer takeaways for companies, non-profit organizations, governments, and individuals who are interested in learning how to launch VPPs that benefit LMI communities.
