Macro Grid Initiative: ACORE Member-Only Kick-Off Webinar

June 16, 2020 | 3:00 – 4:00 pm ET

Grid experts and studies agree that an interregionally connected transmission grid can deliver significant job creation and other economic benefits, enhance grid resiliency, and dramatically reduce carbon emissions. Yet the need for an expanded and upgraded American transmission grid is often left out of the public dialogue on how to achieve a clean energy future.

With support from Breakthrough Energy, an organization founded by Bill Gates that is working to expand clean energy investment and innovation, the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) are launching a new campaign to advance this conversation with key stakeholders, and achieve critical transmission planning and cost allocation reforms at the federal and regional levels.

Please join us for a member-only webinar on ACORE’s new Macro Grid Initiative as we present on the Initiative’s goals, take questions, and provide more details on how your company or organization can get involved in the months ahead.
