Webinar – Transmission: The Key to a Cheaper, Smarter, Cleaner Electricity Grid

Do you care about our energy future? The transmission system is widely misunderstood and it is time to dispel the myths that have grown up around this critical backbone of our nation’s economy, delivering electricity to virtually everyone. Please join Americans for a Clean Energy Grid and WIRES for a discussion of long-distance transmission—and the importance of paying attention to the challenges the grid faces as we confront the need not only to maintain its reliability and resiliency, but to expand it, modernize it, and integrate it as the central nervous system for an increasingly electrified, digital and sustainable society.

Register for our no-cost one-hour webinar on December 13th at 1:00 p.m. featuring former FERC Chairman James H. Hoecker, currently Advisor and Counsel to WIRES and Julia Frayer, Managing Director of London Economics International and one of the co-authors of a recent report, “The Truth About the Need for Transmission Investment: Sixteen Myths Debunked.” The webinar will be moderated by John Jimison, Executive Director of Americans for a Clean Energy Grid.

Americans for a Clean Energy Grid is a diverse coalition of business and environmental leaders supporting efforts to expand, integrate and modernize America’s high-voltage transmission system. WIRES is an international non-profit trade association working to fulfill the promise of a Twenty-first Century North American electric economy.
