The House held a hearing with state utility regulators to discuss challenges to reliable and affordable electricity.
Following is a statement from Ray Long, President and CEO of ACORE, on Willie Phillips being appointed Chair of the FERC.
ACORE supports the Clean Electricity and Transmission Acceleration (CETA) Act for its comprehensive approach toward building a Macro Grid.
Like our interstate system, enacting sound policies that deliver a 21st century grid and spur interregional transmission development will drive tremendous economic benefits, increase resilience and national security operations, and maximize the ability to deliver affordable and reliable energy when we need it most. Given the nation’s aging grid infrastructure and our growing need for energy, there is no time to waste.
Consumers are paying billions of dollars a year due to transmission constraints according to a new report from ACORE and Grid Strategies.
DOE announced the first round of Transmission Facilitation Program capacity contract awards and released the final National Transmission Needs Study.
U.S. power market monitors in the Eastern Interconnection have recommended that grid operators optimize existing interregional transmission for more than a decade, yet inefficient usage of interties continues to raise system costs and reduce reliability, according to a new report.
U.S. grid operators lag far behind international counterparts in deploying a technology that is supporting grid modernization efforts across the world, according to a new report from The Brattle Group and DNV.
As extreme weather events become more frequent, our nation’s balkanized grid is increasingly unable to reliably deliver electricity to where it’s needed. Expanding America’s interregional transmission capacity is key to keeping the lights on.
On August 16, 2022, President Biden signed the largest climate bill in American history – the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) – into law, a landmark investment of $369 billion in climate and clean energy programs.
