STEP Seminar: Cooperative is an Oxymoron: The Transition of Midwestern Electric Cooperatives

Join us for a presentation from Matt Grimley, MS-STEP, on his Masters Thesis:

Cooperative is an Oxymoron: The Transition of Midwestern Electric Cooperatives to Load Management Technologies, 1940s to Present

Decarbonization, electrification, and distributed energy resources all have roots in the Midwestern countryside. Discover how and why electric cooperatives have been deploying flexible electric loads since the 1940s and what it means for today.

The STEP seminar series is an interdisciplinary platform for scholars and practitioners to discuss research and policy issues in the broad domain of science, technology, and environmental policy. The seminar series provides an informal setting for feedback and engagement with ongoing research projects and policy debates.
We invite scholars from all disciplines and practitioners working in all action arenas with connections to the fields of scholarship that shape science, technology, and environmental policy. The seminar series takes place throughout the academic year at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, typically over lunchtime on Mondays.
