REGISTER NOW! and learn how PADEP and PEER are partnering to create reliable, resilient and sustainable power systems in Pennsylvania
Recently, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's Energy Programs Office announced that it has partnered with PEER, the first rating system that measures and improves power system performance and electricity infrastructure. As part of this partnership, PADEP will sponsor the PEER certification of several projects in Pennsylvania.
Join USGBC, GBCI and PADEP for a free hour-long webinar to learn about the partnership and about how energy stakeholders in the Commonwealth can use PEER to advance their grid modernization, resiliency and sustainability goals.
Pennsylvania PEER Webinar
When: September 25, 2019 from 11:00am – 12:00 pm EST
REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR NOW
With PADEP's support, three to five entities in Pennsylvania will receive a free technical assessment of their power system and possible PEER certification. Eligible entities include college campuses, water/wastewater treatment plants, microgrids, rural electric cooperatives, municipal utilities, hospitals, emergency management headquarters, major electric utilities, and/or transit systems.
Energy professionals, policy makers, utility providers, engineering and design professionals, business and industrial leaders who are interested in learning about the partnership and PEER should attend.
PEER encourages the adoption of reliable, resilient and sustainable practices, and helps utilities and campuses solve aging infrastructure, find cost savings, share best practices, build for resiliency and enhance tracking to determine and prevent failures. PEER evaluates and verifies a power system’s performance and, through certification, celebrates industry leaders who are improving their efficiency, day-to-day reliability and overall resiliency and who are preparing for severe events, such as flooding and hurricanes.
The overarching goals of the program are to help modernize our energy infrastructure, reduce global emissions, make our communities more resilient, improve the safety and security of our energy systems, create new green jobs in the electricity industry and catalyze economic growth at all levels.
The Pennsylvania PEER project is funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection from the US Department of Energy’s State Energy Program. The webinar is the first in a series of education and outreach events to educate customers, stakeholders and policy makers. For more information, contact Heidi Kunka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
