Energy underlies three converging challenges facing the United States today: economic prosperity, security, and the environment. Electricity continues to be a key enabler in addressing these challenges, but it has come under substantial pressures to respond to environmental concerns, deal with uncertainties in both local and global energy supplies, and accommodate the rapid evolution of new generation sources and technology options available to its users. The major challenge is to develop solutions which take into account limited energy supplies as well as availability of financial resources.
