WASHINGTON, D.C. – “We commend Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) for his leadership in introducing legislation to promote a more reliable, efficient and flexible electricity grid.

This proposal would accelerate the development of important emerging technologies and processes that enable a more reliable, resilient and secure power system, including energy storage, improved electricity market design, and more dynamic communication and information flows.

We welcome this opportunity to work with Senator Wyden and others in Congress in support of investment and development of an electricity infrastructure system critical to harnessing America’s abundant domestic renewable energy resources and continued economic growth.”
