August 16, 2021 – Matt Thibodeau of Sargent & Lundy will be presenting at the Solar and Energy Storage Association of Puerto Rico (SESA) Summit in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His fireside chat, “Overcoming Engineering Challenges of Quick Transition to Renewables,” will take place August 18 from 11:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ADT.
A renewable energy expert from the firm’s energy business consulting group, Thibodeau will highlight engineering challenges on the path to high penetration levels of renewable energy and strategies for overcoming those challenges in an informal conversation format.
Thibodeau’s experience with Puerto Rico’s energy grid stem from Sargent & Lundy’s support to the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) during the past several years, including renewable energy integration studies. These studies are timely as Puerto Rico has a procurement process underway to add 3.75 GW solar and 1.5 GW storage to its grid.
The SESA Summit will be held August 16-18 and is expected to draw solar and energy storage leaders and collaborators committed to the transformation and growth of sustainable energy in Puerto Rico.
Registration for this engaging conference is open to anyone and will be presented in person. Participants of all professional levels will network with Puerto Rico’s industry leaders in politics and regulation, learn about current and future opportunities, and develop relationships with potential business partners.
