How Con Edison is adapting to climate change

Register to view video

Utilities need to start incorporating climate change into every aspect of planning, design, operations, and emergency response. Why? Because extreme heat waves, the crippling polar vortex, damaging floods exacerbated by sea level rise, devastating wildfires, and more require a new way of thinking.

Hear how Consolidated Edison embraced this challenge by relying on science, stakeholder engagement, and benchmarking to strengthen their energy systems and address adverse impacts of climate change and natural disasters. This webinar will cover:

  • What is driving utility action on climate resilience?
  • How and why Con Edison created their Climate Change Implementation Plan
  • What can all utilities be doing now to shape a similar journey?
Explore insights on how to drive low-emission transitions and build resilience against the effects of climate change.
