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.
The career fair will consist of two parts. The first part consists of a dedicated presentation time of one uninterrupted hour for each company, with time for Q&A at the end, and a virtual booth setup. During the presentation time, each company will present what they do in nuclear, career opportunities, etc. For the virtual booths, each company will have a zoom room where they can have intermittent staffed and unstaffed sessions.During the staffed periods, students may ask questions to the company representatives, but this will not necessarily be 1-on-1. During the unstaffed periods, attendees will only see the company cover slide with times for the next staffed period, and the cover slide will include information about the company itself. Each company may choose the frequencies of their staffed sessions, and may choose to staff their booth for the entire time, just the one hour session, or any frequency or length between these two options.
The career fair will run from Thursday to Saturday, from 11:00 am - 6:00 pm EST.
