Athena Power was selected as a leading Washington, D.C. based smartgrid company to present it’s solutions and accomplishments since it’s inception to Constellation Technology Ventures and the D.C. energy community.
Athena Power meets Congressman Olson (22nd District of Texas) and energy staff members on Capitol Hill to introduce and promote high-tech solutions for grid modernization. With the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey which ravaged the Houston community, Athena Power is looking to support coastal cities, such as Houston, with smart sensor technologies. Smartgrid senors can help reduce outage and patrol time, resulting in improved reliability and resiliency within the distribution network of cities.
Please join Athena Power on the Hill at National Clean Energy week to learn about some of latest grid modernization efforts to improve America’s critical power infrastructure. The National Clean Energy Week’s Symposium & Demonstration Fair serves as the centerpiece of our week-long activity in Washington, D.C. Lawmakers and leaders in government, including Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers will address participants on public policy and engage in conversation.
In partnership with the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER), and the Global America Business Institute (GABI), Athena Power will be leading a roundtable on “The Importance of Grid Infrastructure Modernization and Resilience: Opportunities under the Trump Administration” on Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 from noon to 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be served.
Where: 1001 Connecticut 2nd Floor Conference Room (1001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 230, Washington, DC 20036)
The U.S. electric grid is an essential and central piece of the country’s critical infrastructure through its crucial role in distributing reliable power to residences, workplaces, public spaces, health and safety facilities, and factories throughout the nation. However, the grid was designed and built around technologies and business models that are changing. Modernizing the grid is vital for further integration of distributed energy resources and the development of more efficient wholesale markets, which will continue to lower electricity costs and fuel U.S. competitiveness. Grid modernization will also bolster reliability by making the grid more secure and resilient to cyber-attacks, severe weather events, and aging. Power outages cost the U.S. billions of dollars of economic activity annually, and investing in the country’s aging grid infrastructure will strengthen the country’s productivity and quality of life.
