Unlocking transmission capacity is key to a renewable-energy powered future

NOVEMBER 27, 2020 – As the world turns deliberately and inevitably towards a renewable energy future, innovators from around the world have worked tirelessly to improve upon renewable energy generation technology to the point where it now competes dollar for dollar with fossil generation. However, while those innovators have focused on more efficient wind turbines, solar panels and storage technology, utilities are struggling to keep pace. We must work to modernize and optimize our aging grid for utility scale renewable energy assets if we are to optimize grid performance, alleviate transmission congestion and realize the full potential of what is an exciting global energy transition.
