February's presentation features two strategic thought-leaders from Eversource. You will learn about existing and planned offshore wind power, electric vehicles, utility-scale battery storage in Provincetown and dispatchable Demand Response. All part of Eversource's plan to be carbon neutral by 2030.

Michael Goldman, Director

Eversource Energy Efficiency Regulatory, Planning and Evaluation

Michael Goldman is a Director on the Energy Efficiency team at Eversource Energy, the largest energy delivery company in New England.  Mr. Goldman has two main responsibilities: oversight of all energy efficiency evaluation, measurement, and verification activities as well as the development of behind the meter peak load mitigation programs. Prior to his role at Eversource, Michael worked for Deloitte Consulting’s energy and resource practice area. He received a BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an MA in economics and energy policy from the Johns Hopkins University. 

Our distinguished Speakers will cover specific initiatives Eversource and other utilities are implementing. And some challenges. Remember when electricity went only one-way? Now, under the banner of sustainability and carbon-reduction we’re adding renewables, DR assets, EV stations and microgrids. These are individually desirable on the merits. But these sources and users are only somewhat predictable.

System operators must dispatch and balance the physical flow of electricity, deliver renewables to customers while maintaining reliability and controlling voltage… all safely and affordably. Consider how important battery storage or microgrid can be during an emergency. But how problematic it may be for a system operator. Please join us to learn how we can use pioneering technology to achieve sustainable energy infrastructure for the 21st century.
