Electric Co-ops Among Innovators at Electrification Conference
EPRI’s Electrification 2020 conference will be held in Charlotte this April
Charlotte will play host to the Electrification 2020 conference and expo in April, sponsored in part by North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives. The event is the second of its kind hosted by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), a nonprofit energy industry research and development group.
The international conference will draw together industry leaders, including speakers from North Carolina’s electric cooperatives, to discuss new ways energy technology can be used to create efficiencies and reduce carbon emissions.
“Electrification 2020 is all about beneficial electrification — improving efficiency of the overall energy sector by electrifying processes and devices formerly powered by fossil fuels,” said Diane Huis, senior vice president of Innovation & Business Development for North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives.
“We’re happy to have this year’s event in our own backyard, where we can share some of the ways electric co-ops have been using new technology to better serve their members.”
The event will be held April 6–9, 2020 at the Charlotte Convention Center. Discounted conference admission is available for representatives of large commercial or industrial businesses. Contact your electric co-op for more information.
