Haskell Energy Conference:
Electricity's Role in Meeting Our Energy Needs

by M Webler
(Pittsburgh, PA, USA)


The University of Maine College of Engineering will host the Haskell Energy Conference: Electricity's Role in Meeting Our Energy Needs from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 2, at the Arthur Hill Auditorium, 165 Barrows Hall, located at the University of Maine campus.

The conference will focus on the important energy challenges ahead and the path forward for building a smart electrical grid.

UMaine is planning to assist the state's electric utilities in the implementation of a Maine Smart Grid.

The integration of the Maine Smart Grid with existing renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, not only will satisfy the state's energy needs but also result in significant economic development opportunities for Maine. The smart grid will be a digitally connected and controllable electrical energy network that will provide reliability, efficiency, security, and access to the state's vast energy resources.

Specifics of the project will be discussed at the Haskell Energy Conference, which is designed for industry personnel, students, researchers, and the public.
