ESNA Global Grid Program

A Collaborative Effort from:


Each year ESNA hosts the Global Grid Transformation (GGT) program, a one-day facilitated roundtable and workshop with key stakeholders from around the world. International delegations come together to promote cross-border collaboration on grid transformation issues with policymakers and companies from across North America to exchange ideas, share success stories and brainstorm solutions to key challenges, with a focus on promoting a decarbonized, resilient and affordable power grid. Key takeaways are then shared widely through various channels including the issuance of a public whitepaper and webinars.

​Energy storage will play a central role in multi-sector decarbonization and the decentralized, resilient, affordable power grid of the future. We invite you to join the ESNA Global Grid Transformation program.
