Developing the future energy systems workforce: Perspectives from the industry and academia
The power grid is rapidly evolving, and so is increasing the need for a skilled workforce to effectively operate a cleaner, more reliable, and resilient grid in the future. Today, a power systems engineer needs diverse tools, at the intersection of classical power engineering, communication systems, cybersecurity, and data analytics to meet the needs of changing grid operations. Universities are tasked with the responsibility of equipping students with knowledge in these diverse domains. Join us for a discussion on how universities in the U.S. are preparing students to be successful in their power systems careers, what can be done better, and how the industry can effectively support universities in developing the future energy systems workforce. Panelists will bring decades of experience in academia and industry.
