The U.S. electric grid must adapt to climate change and the new energy economy

The National Academy of Sciences presents the webcast Climate Conversations: The Grid. Sue Tierney of the Analysis Group moderates a conversation between Bill Ritter, Jr., from the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University, and Lauren Azar at Azar Law LLC. The group discusses numerous topics about our electric grid and climate change: how to adapt the U.S. electric grid to meet the needs of a decarbonized and electrified country, and how to provide power and facilitate the new energy economy. Other challenges include transmission, storage, land use, siting, and interconnection. Further, the panelists address the impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
