WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 11, 2018)—Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG), a broad coalition of interests that recognize the need for an efficiently expanded, integrated, and modernized high-voltage electric transmission grid as a prerequisite to an affordable and reliable clean energy economy, has elected its officers for 2019: President, Nina Plaushin, ITC Holdings Corp. Vice President,
In recent months, ACEG has received a number of questions about China’s efforts to expand their transmission infrastructure. This issue brief authored by Lou Schwartz, a lawyer and China specialist, provides an overview of China’s grid expansion buildout and is intended to be a helpful resource for anyone interested in Chinese transmission infrastructure development.

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
The Interconnections Seam Study, released at the TransGrid-X 2030 Symposium at Iowa State University in July 2018, addresses the benefits and costs of expanding electric transmission between the Eastern and Western U.S. power grids. The study analyzed three scenarios of expanding transmission between the two regions, thus making the grid more national and flexible in nature.

Big companies are increasingly signing deals to buy wind and solar power, and their large and growing demand may exceed the capacity of existing and planned transmission lines—yet transmission planners aren’t taking this into account as they draw up their future plans, according to a new study from Wind Energy Foundation. On March 27th at 12 p.m.
On February 8, 2018, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing on U.S. energy infrastructure. During the hearing, witness testimony made it clear that transmission is an important part of energy infrastructure, and that updating U.S. transmission networks is important to maintaining strong energy infrastructure.
