Transmission Policy Recommendations for the Next Administration and Congress

 

Washington D.C. (October 2020)– In light of the upcoming presidential elections, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) has published the following policies which would help advance large scale regional and inter-regional transmission in the country, increasing reliability, resilience, efficiency, and environmental objectives.

Rob Gramlich, Executive Director of ACEG, said “ACEG is pleased to share these recommendations with federal policy makers. Transmission is the platform on which our modern economy is built. It is time for policy makers to give this important infrastructure its due attention to support a vibrant economy and clean environment.”

ACEG brings together the diverse support for an expanded and modernized grid from business, labor, consumer, and environmental groups, as well as other transmission supporters to educate policymakers and key opinion leaders to support policy which recognizes the benefits of a robust transmission grid. ACEG serves as a clearinghouse of ideas that our coalition sponsors and supporters believe will positively impact large scale regional and inter-regional transmission. This document does not reflect the priorities of any particular sponsor or supporter.

WASHINGTON, D.C.
— This past summer, The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) launched the Macro Grid Initiative to build support for expanding and upgrading the nation’s transmission network. A 21st century Macro Grid will deliver jobs and economic development, a cleaner environment, and lower costs for consumers.

Achieving the Macro Grid vision will require new policies at the federal, regional and state levels that recognize the substantial nationwide benefits of an interregionally connected transmission network.
