On Thursday, July 27, Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster, in partnership with the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability, will be holding a Cleantech Catalyst event titled Transmission: The Backbone of Clean Energy. The event will highlight the need for strategic investments in transmission infrastructure and feature industry leaders who will provide "Spark Talks" on their latest developments in transmission. The event will include ample time for networking with the goal of sparking potential areas of overlapping interest and collaboration among participants.
Transmission will play an important role in the success of the clean energy transition. From electric vehicle charging to offshore wind, strategic investments in transmission infrastructure are required to meet growing demands and integrate expanding renewable energy sources into the grid.
North Carolina is home to several companies that are working to create resilient and reliable transmission. Join RTCC and the Nicholas Institute as participating speakers give "spark talks" about their latest developments in transmission. Following these brief presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with speakers and network with other participants.
