What are your key learnings from 2021 relative to the U.S. electric sector? A couple stand out for me: 1) the responsibility we all continue to have to help ensure that Americans have reliable, affordable power supplies, and 2) the vulnerability that exists from relentless cyberattacks against our critical infrastructure. In this context, it's laudable that Protect Our Power has identified four priorities for 2022 to enhance the security and resilience of the U.S. electric grid. One can agree or disagree with the list, but the discussion is worth having, and the value of reaching consensus -- and acting expeditiously -- is vital.
