“Like Eisenhower, Skelly had a plan: He wanted to begin building a new power grid that could carry inexpensive renewable electricity from places such as the Oklahoma panhandle to the east and west. An electricity superhighway that would save customers money while reducing pollution and carbon emissions. An interstate system for electrons.” – Russell Gold, WSJ
On July 16, 2019, Americans for a Clean Energy Grid hosted a webinar featuring a discussion with Russell Gold, senior energy reporter at The Wall Street Journal and author of Superpower: One Man’s Quest to Transform American Energy. In his new book he explores efforts to integrate affordable renewable energy and reconceptualize the American power grid, profiling the work of renewable energy pioneer Michael Skelly. Michael Skelly, current senior advisor at Lazard and founder of Clean Line Energy, joined the conversation to discuss his experience developing clean energy and transmission infrastructure, as well as ongoing challenges and opportunities. Katherine Hamilton, chair of 38 North Solutions and co-host of The Energy Gang, facilitated the discussion.
