- Apr 15, 2021 11:47 am GMT
You could argue that in the world of modernizing the utility industry that transmission has taken somewhat of a backseat (at least in terms of headlines and mainstream attention) compared with generation. People have wanted to hear about shiny solar panels and wind turbines, to debate the merits of nuclear power, and to brag about the shift away from fossil fuels. But recently, it seems like the transmission system has started to take more of the center stage:
- The good : the Biden Administration has looked to the grid as a key area of focus for its massive proposed infrastructure investments
- The bad: extreme conditions like hurricanes, wildfires, and freezes have brought reliability and resilience of transmission infrastructure to the forefront
- The unknown: smart technologies, cybersecurity, and the future of grid modernization has opened up lots of questions about the future of transmission systems
