Leveraging the trilemma | the promise of integrated electrification planning

Tuesday, April 4th: 15:00 - 16:00 - Building 314

HOST: World Energy Council


The challenge of scaling the potential of distributed energy sources (DER) is at the core of the power sector transformation. Building on six years of analyzing and ranking the sustainability of energy systems around the world, the 2017 Energy Trilemma dialogue focuses on the innovative deployment and integration of distributed energy into existing power systems and the fundamental shift in thinking required from governments, regulators, producers, consumers and the finance sector. This interactive workshop will explore near-term needs and opportunities for the deployment and integration of DER and accelerating progress on the SEforALL goals.
