FERC to look at grid reliability
Spurred by last week’s power grid failure in Texas, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Monday announced that it will open a new proceeding to examine the threat that climate change and extreme weather events pose to electric reliability. The proceeding, FERC said, will investigate how grid operators prepare for and respond to these events, including droughts, extreme cold, wildfires, hurricanes, and prolonged heat waves.
September 12–16, 2021
Seattle, WA|Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Our meeting vision is to ensure attendees leave with renewed interest in their field of expertise by exposing them to new tools that make them more effective, showing them the value of membership in the RPSD community, and providing an enjoyable destination for the meeting. We will emphasize the technical intersection between tool developers and user applications, taking advantage of the synergy between the two diverse groups of attendees. Through the planned technical sessions, workshops, plenary talks, and social events, we hope to provide an environment that is ideal for the two communities to engage in productive technical discussions, establish collaborations, and build community.
Submit a Summary
We are proud to follow in the long tradition of joint RPSD-ICRS meetings and hope to achieve the success of the last meeting in Paris (2016). Our meeting vision is to ensure attendees leave with renewed interest in their field of expertise by exposing them to new tools that make them more effective, showing them the value of membership in the RPSD and ICRS communities, and providing an enjoyable destination for the meeting. We hope to provide an environment for tool developers, code users, theoreticians, and experimentalists to engage in productive discussions, establish collaborations, and build community in the foreground of scientific advancements and challenges in radiation protection and shielding.
