Energy Series Background Decorative image

While snow in Texas may be a photo-worthy diversion, the freezing temperatures experienced by the state in February caused power systems to crash while demand was at its peak. Problems cut across all sectors, from fossil fuels to renewables. The impacts from the freeze are still being assessed, but the repercussions will reverberate throughout the grid for years to come. During this webinar, we will unpack what happened and see what lessons can be gleaned as the energy needs and sources of Texas and the nation continue to evolve.
