Connection and collaboration are the main themes for this year’s Resilient Virginia Conference, which is set for August 1 & 2 in Richmond. The conference is designed to offer the opportunity for collaboration between representatives from businesses, higher education and local governments on how Virginia can set the best path for energy resources and resiliency.
Speakers are from a breadth of fields, from the Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response to Engineering professors to our own founder, Karen Schaufeld, who will be participating in a panel discussion about Innovative Technologies and Solutions for Moving Towards Energy Security. She will represent large-scale private solar in the discussion. Others on the panel include Moderator Angela Navarro, Virginia Deputy Secretary of Natural Resources; Eduardo Alcorta, Senior Business Development Leader, Distributed Power, GE Power, who will focus on microgrid systems and their role in resiliency; Aaron Sutch, Program Director, VA SUN, who will address small-scale Distributed Solar; and Dianne Corsello, Director of Business Development, Dominion Energy: Utility-Scale Solar.
The event serves as an opportunity to tap into the diverse set of minds present to identify challenges and discuss ways to tackle them, explore resiliency options for organizations and communities and discuss what both the private and public sectors can to do ensure a more sustainable future for the Commonwealth.
