PJM Interconnection is hosting its Grid 20/20: Focus on Resilience (Fuel Mix Diversity & Security) on April 19 in Philadelphia. 

The conference will feature expert panelists speaking to issues raised in the recent PJM's Evolving Resource Mix and System Reliability report, including the amount of natural gas and renewable generation the system can reliably use.

PJM President and CEO Andrew Ott will kick-off the conference of three expert panels, with his remarks on PJM's perspective on the issue. 

Among the panelists are:  Mark McCullough, executive vice president - Generation, AEP; Joseph McClelland, director, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission;  Jackie Roberts, director, West Virginia Consumer Advocate Division; Robert Kott, Operations Policy Manager, Regional Operations Policy and Analytics, CAISO and Rick Mroz, President, NJBPU.

"As important as we feel our recent study is in informing the discussion on resilience, we need our stakeholders engaged in taking the next steps," Ott said. "The diversity of panelists represented at this conference brings the kind of rich perspectives to help guide where we go from here."

PJM's Grid 20/20 will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT and can be attended virtually through WebEx. However, registration is required.  The limit has already been reached for in-person attendance.
