How do we solve yesterday’s interconnection problems with today’s technology? 

Alexina Jackson, Vice President of Strategic Development at The AES Corporation, pulls back the curtain to show us how AES is using cutting-edge technology to integrate MORE renewable energy into the grid. Because we need to add new energy fast and our current grid isn’t up to the challenge, AES is inventing solutions as they go.

Expect to learn:

  • How AES’s new technology can push more power through existing wiring when the conditions are right
  • Why more battery storage will add flexibility to the energy grid.
  • AES’s method for turning distributed resources (separate windmills, solar farms, etc.) into “virtual power plants” 

AES is the leading developer for commercial and industrial customers in the US. They’re on the front lines, inventing technologies to augment the efficiency of existing utility assets.
