State of Play: Puerto Rico’s Grid

From our Editorial Team

In advance of the 3rd Puerto Rico Grid Revitalization Forum (PR-GRID 2020), we hosted a webinar that gathered a panel of experts to try to make sense of what’s driving grid programs and projects in Puerto Rico.

The discussion covered critical issues such as:

  • How have the earthquakes impacted grid planning?
  • What’s the status of the IRP?
  • What’s the latest on the bondholder agreement? And on the award of the T&D concession?
  • How is the federal government supporting grid initiatives?
  • How are municipalities, communities and companies responding?

We heard from:

  • Jennifer Decesaro, Senior Advisor, U.S. Department of Energy
  • Carlos Fernandez Lugo, Chair of Environmental, Energy and Land Use Practice Group, McConnell Valdés LLC
  • Carlos Rodriguez, President, Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association (PRMA)
  • Tomás J. Torres-Placa, Executive Director, Institute of Competitiveness and Sustainable Economy for Puerto Rico (moderator)

This webinar opens the conversation that will continue at the 3rd Puerto Rico Grid Revitalization Forum (PR-GRID 2020) in San Juan, PR (July 14-15), hosted by New Energy Events and PRMA.
