The Progressive Policy Institute – Improving Electricity Transmission Siting Opportunities to Meet America’s Consumer, Economic, and Clean Energy Climate Goals
Join the Progressive Policy Institute as we convene a virtual event on improving the siting opportunities for electricity transmission lines on September 14 at 10:00 AM ET. The event will generate a discussion focused on timely and critical questions including:
What scale of the transmission line expansion is needed to fulfill President Biden’s goal of 100% clean energy from the electric sector by 2035?
• How do America’s current planning, siting and permitting federal and state laws and practices interfere with or enable this expansion?
• What are the prospects of addressing this challenge in the infrastructure bill or other legislative vehicles in Congress?
• What is the proper relationship between federal and state governments on electric transmission line planning?
