Summit Themes

Grid Modernization Initiative (February 6-8, 2024)

Creating the grid of the future to deliver resilient, reliable, flexible, secure, sustainable, and affordable electricity. 

Participate in a series of meetings that will reflect on and inform the GMI. The GMI coordinates research, design, and development efforts across nine DOE offices and 14 national labs to accelerate and enhance the rate of innovation in this critical space. Meeting sessions are designed to review the Department’s latest strategy for grid modernization, understand current GMI activities, promote industry initiatives, and provide an opportunity for stakeholder input on the direction of GMI activities. Sessions will deep dive into the six GMI pillars – markets, planning, operations, devices, flexibility, and resilience – and examine synergies for their advancement through diverse and robust partnerships.

Clean Energy Cybersecurity (February 5-8, 2024)

Fostering collaborative security solutions to enable a more resilient and equitable energy transition.

Join critical discussions around preparing our nation for a cyber resilient transition to a clean energy future. Sessions will feature speakers and participants from Congress, the White House Office of the National Cyber Director, DOE, energy sector stakeholders, cyber solutions providers, investors, national laboratories, academia, and other federal, state, and local government agencies. Facilitated discussion and industry panels will cover cyber risk, policy and regulatory considerations, technology innovation and solutions, and cyber workforce, training, and exercises.

Attendees are invited to join the Clean Energy Cybersecurity hosts on Monday, February 5, for pre-event trainings, meetings, and exercises, including SLTT sessions.
