Meet Meredith Angwin, Author of Shorting the Grid: The Hidden Fragility of Our Electric Grid

NECA’s Young Professionals Committee invites everyone to a special virtual event featuring Meredith Angwin, energy analyst and author of Shorting the Grid: The Hidden Fragility of Our Electric Grid. You don’t have to read the book to benefit from a discussion with this dynamic author, but it can be easily purchased on the usual book purchasing sites or directly through Meredith. And a few of her books will be raffled off during the program!

As a working chemist, Meredith headed projects that lowered pollution and increased reliability on the electric grid. Her work included pollution control for nitrogen oxides in gas-fired combustion turbines, and corrosion control in geothermal and nuclear systems. She was one of the first women to be a project manager at the Electric Power Research Institute. She led projects in renewable and nuclear energy. In the past ten years, she began to study and take part in grid oversight and governance. For four years, she served on the Coordinating Committee for the Consumer Liaison Group associated with ISO-NE, her local grid operator.
