Energy Infrastructure Symposium Banner Image

ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE SYMPOSIUM

The last summer in Texas has been an exemplar to the challenges we face with the energy infrastructure. The aging and “old energy” generation infrastructure is increasingly being retired and much of the reliance of base-load power generation from these sources is becoming ineffective. In the meantime, the new generation and storage infrastructure is displaying the classic early technology challenges and not as reliable and causing significant economic impact.
