Updating grid flexibility is key to reaching clean energy goals, but it will take massive investments in infrastructure that has seen years of deferred maintenance. Updating transmission lines to ensure adequate capacity and minimal energy waste is a critical variable in this. So, too, is the expansion of the grid's capability to allow for inter-regional transmission. Fives western states are aiming for 50% clean energy within the decade. With grid flexibility, a report by Energy Strategies says these states could reach 67% clean energy by 2035.
