Time: Early October
A new report from the Clean Air Task Force and the Niskanen Center finds that the current piecemeal, project-by-project approach to expanding U.S. electricity transmission won’t get clean energy infrastructure built fast enough to decarbonize in the years to come. Instead, it calls for a new system to rapidly scale capacity, potentially establishing a National Transmission Organization that would plan, site, and fund a national grid to ensure that burdens and benefits are fairly shared.
During this upcoming webinar, Armond Cohen (Clean Air Task Force) and Liza Reed (Niskanen Center) will summarize the report. A conversation—moderated by Lindsey Griffith of Clean Air Task Force—with U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Richard Glick—will follow. We will discuss the report’s conclusions, the benefits and limitations of FERC involvement, and the way forward.
This event has been postponed to October, and information about the details will be coming soon. We encourage you to register to get the most up-to-date information.
