Modernizing the U.S. Energy System: Opportunities, Challenges, and the Path Forward Find out more about the briefings in this series below: June 04 Towards the Energy System of Tomorrow June 11 Modernizing America’s Transmission Network June 25 Leveraging Grid Edge Integration for Resilience & Decarbonization Our live webcasts will be streamed at 12:00 PM EDT at The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to join us for a briefing series about the climate benefits of modernizing the nation’s energy system. As renewable energy infrastructure is scaled up across the country, moving that energy from where it is generated to the people who will use it is critical to meeting the country’s decarbonization goals. Investments in the transmission network will not only build demand for renewable energy use, but will also create jobs, increase the grid’s efficiency, and lower costs for consumers. Panelists will discuss what is needed to modernize the transmission network, including developing transmission infrastructure for offshore wind and increasing cooperation between states. The briefing will also cover how the transmission network can be constructed and maintained to maximize ecosystem conservation, respect Tribal lands, and increase the resilience of neighboring communities.
