State, federal representatives participate in energy summit

PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University hosted its inaugural energy summit April 2 with a focus on storage technologies, one of the most critical challenges of incorporating renewable energy into the electric power grid.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and others spoke.

“WSU has long worked on research for building a more resilient, robust and smarter electric power grid,” said WSU President Elson S. Floyd. “Being able to store solar or wind energy remains one of the key pieces to building a sustainable, carbon-free power grid and a stronger economy for the state.”

The event was hosted by WSU’s Energy Systems Innovation Center.
