Integrating the Gas and Electric Systems: Problems and Potential Solutions

Online PR News – 30-October-2013 – Atlanta, GA – ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, is proud to sponsor and moderate a panel at PennWell’s TransForum East event to be held Tuesday, October 29 – Wednesday, October 30 at the Westin Georgetown in Washington, DC. This regional forum connects attendees with the transmission industry executives who operate, plan, build, regulate, and invest in electric power transmission systems in North America.

Cristin Lyons, partner and transmission, distribution, and smart grid practice leader at ScottMadden, will moderate the panel, “Integrating the Gas and Electric Systems: Problems and Potential Solutions.” This session will focus on how the shift to gas-fired generation will impact the electric grid. It will discuss the short- and long-term challenges associated with this transition and what might be done to resolve these issues.
