EPRI Current Episodes
How to Be Carbon Free Hour by HourArin Kaye
The shift from procuring 100 percent renewable energy on an annual basis to 24/7 Carbon Free Energy (CFE) on an hourly basis marks a potentially important evolution of corporate efforts to promote clean energy.
Join EPRI's Arin Kaye, and Iron Mountain Data Centers' Chris Pennington as they provide an overview of this emerging topic, and how companies like Iron Mountain are shifting to CFE 24/7. Plus, find out how EPRI is helping support these efforts through the emergence of a new CFE 24/7 Interest Group.
Supply Chain Opportunities for Clean Energy TechnologiesRobin Bedilion
Strong supply chains are vital to all businesses. But a series of perfect storm events ... COVID, geopolitical issues, environmental and human rights concerns, among others ... have created ongoing supply chain challenges resulting in bottlenecks, project delays, and cost increases for clean energy technologies such as wind, solar, and battery storage. This episode explores supply chain challenges and opportunities affecting the clean energy technologies of today and tomorrow and the potential impacts on achieving global decarbonization goals.
Robin Bedilion is a Principal Project Manager in the Energy Systems and Climate Analysis group at EPRI. She conducts techno-economic analyses and cost and performance research evaluating current and emerging power sector technologies to support utility resource planning and EPRI's energy-economy modeling. She earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Santa Clara University and a master's degree in mechanical engineering with a focus on energy systems from Stanford University.
Extreme Heat: How the Changing Climate Raises the RiskDan Kirk-Davidoff, Erik Smith
Join two of EPRI's climate experts, Dan Kirk-Davidoff and Erik Smith, as they discuss extreme heat, the relationship between climate and weather, and the ongoing El Nino. With many experiencing record heat this summer, our guests offer insight into the current overall U.S. heat profile and how we can use this data to prepare the energy system for future extreme weather.
Becoming Climate READiAndrea Staid
In this episode of the EPRI Current, our host chats with EPRI's Morgan Scott and Andrea Staid on the most recent white paper published by EPRI's Climate READi Initiative. Results show that planning for future climate conditions and proactively implementing resilience strategies may significantly reduce the costs incurred by energy companies for response, repair, and recovery. How much? Listen to find out.
Morgan Scott is the director for Climate READi, Sustainability & Ecosystem Stewardship at EPRI. Morgan leads the Institute's effort to design and develop a comprehensive industry approach to physical climate risk assessment and mitigation. Andrea Staid is a senior technical leader in EPRI's Energy Systems and Climate Analysis group. Andrea is a co-lead for Workstream 3 in the Climate READi initiative and also supports other work in the areas of climate resilience and climate impact modeling.
