U.S. C3E Women in Clean Energy webinar series: Utility leadership in accelerating the carbon-free energy transition
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, 72% of customer accounts in the U.S. are served by an electric utility with a 100% 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.
