New Study Presents a Plan for a Low Cost and Clean Grid: A Discussion of the Seams Study with Transmission Leaders
October 9, 2019 @ 4:00 am
The Interconnections Seam Study (“Seams Study”) is a remarkable analysis that points the way toward the ultimate integration of the U.S. power grid, which will provide consumers with access to lower-cost, more reliable, and cleaner electricity. On Tuesday, October 9 at 1 p.m. ET/10 PT, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG) discussed the implications of this study. Rob Gramlich, ACEG Board Member and President of Grid Strategies LLC, moderated the discussion and Jay Caspary, co-chair of the study’s Technical Review Committee and Director of Research & Development at Southwest Power Pool presented key findings from the study. Michael Goggin, member of the Technical Review Committee and Vice President of Grid Strategies, and Jesse Jenkins, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, weighed in with their commentary on why expanding the grid is critical for consumer savings, electricity sector decarbonization, and increased reliability.
