Summary Washington, D.C. — The 2023 update to the Projects Ready-To-Go Report, originally released in 2021, highlights 36 high-capacity transmission projects that are “shovel ready.” If completed, these projects would deliver […]
A new report from Grid Strategies and Americans for a Clean Energy Grid identifies 36 high-capacity transmission projects that could be ready to break ground in the near term and, if completed, would connect 187 gigawatts of renewable resources to the grid, create 3.3 million jobs, improve electric reliability, and lower electricity costs for consumers.
Americans for a Clean Energy Grid evaluated and ranked 10 U.S. regions on the strength of their transmission planning and development efforts.
A complex network of high-capacity transmission lines transport energy from where it is produced into our homes, businesses, schools, and hospitals. Multiple federal, state, and local authorities have the power to regulate transmission. ACEG explores how transmission is planned, how it is permitted, and who pays for it.
Transmission is critical to electric reliability, particularly as extreme weather becomes more frequents and demands on the grid due to electrification increase. High-capacity transmission allows regions to share energy in moments of need, which helps keep the lights on and reduce costs for household energy customers.
