  • 15 years after Congress passed energy legislation with provisions to advance transmission technologies, Rob Gramlich will assess where that effort stands and discuss some promising technologies.
  • He will describe a new policy opportunity led by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to improve incentives for technologies that allow more delivery over existing network assets.
