Webinar: Transmission Planning for 100% Clean Electricity

This webinar, hosted by the Energy Systems Integration Group (ESIG), will discuss national transmission planning to support grid decarbonization. It will occur Feb 23, 2021 02:00 PM Eastern Time.

Grid decarbonization across the US will necessitate large-scale transmission infrastructure. This report covers a study conducted by more than 50 US and international electricity experts to refine a conceptual design for a national macro grid to support rapid, reliable, and affordable decarbonization of the electricity system. Many of the richest wind and solar resources are located far from the urban load centers, so the nation’s transmission infrastructure must at least double to accommodate the exponential growth of wind and solar that will accompany decarbonization. This report covers specifics of the national macro grid, including:

  • National transmission planning
  • Renewable energy zones
  • Macro grid concept
