Electricity Affordability Metrics for the U.S.

June 14, 2018

1:00pm — 2:00pm ET

Through the US Department of Energy’s Grid Modernization Lab Consortium (GMLC), the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed electricity affordability metrics at the state and county levels for the United States. This webinar will introduce a simple spreadsheet interface to map these electricity affordability metrics.

Monisha Shah of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will discuss the GMLC and its work to measure the progress of the nation’s grid modernization efforts. Dave Anderson of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will explain the electricity affordability concept, present the methods used to construct affordability metrics, and demonstrate the mapping tool.

This webinar is presented by CESA as part of the Sustainable Solar Education Project. 

Note: The tool is expected to be made available in advance of the webinar date. We will post it here when it is available. If you would like to read more about electricity affordability metrics before then, please refer to Chapter 7 (p. 98) of the GMLC reference manual
