The U.S. electrical grid is aging and struggling to keep up with the rapid growth of renewable power. To meet the demands of a clean energy future, there’s a rush to develop a “smart grid” and build big transmission projects. While many state leaders argue developing the electrical transmission and distribution system is key for economic development, there is debate over who will pay for investments needed to revamp U.S. electricity infrastructure.
Join POLITICO on Wednesday, May 15, for a deep-dive conversation on what’s needed to build the power infrastructure of the future. We’ll ask questions such as: How do we ensure that the grid is efficient, secure, reliable and affordable? Where should spending be prioritized?
