By 2050, New Jersey aims to be a carbon-free economy. However, it has yet to chart a road map for achieving that goal.
What needs to happen to transition us from here - a state that now relies on natural gas for 40 percent of its electricity and 75 percent of its home heating - to there?
How do we electrify our transportation system, modernize an aging power grid, and seamlessly integrate clean energy? How can we use energy more efficiently? In the first of a series of energy roundtables in 2019, NJ Spotlight will ask experts about the challenges, pitfalls, and benefits of transitioning to a clean energy future and for their practical suggestions toward attaining the goal. The keynote address will frame considerations vital to the clean energy road map such as the evolving roles of utilities, markets, customers, and regulators in the state's migration to a 21st century electric system and the realization of a 100% clean energy future. Attendees may submit questions for consideration in advance of the event as part of the registration process.
