The Critical Consumer Issues Forum (CCIF) today released a new report, “Planning for the Electric System of the Future: The Path to a More Resilient Energy Grid.” The report was released at a virtual event during which participants shared their insights and takeaways from CCIF’s year-long dialogue on the important topic of energy grid resilience. CCIF is a collaborative that includes members of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), the National Association of State Utility Consumer Advocates (NASUCA), and the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), who work together to develop solutions to meet customer needs.
CCIF’s latest report features 12 consensus principles on energy grid resilience developed by participants from the state commissioner, consumer advocate, and electric company communities. The report is intended to serve as a foundation for additional dialogue and collaboration among these three core groups, as well as consumers, community representatives, other government agencies and officials, emergency response personnel, and other stakeholders. Leaders from each of the major participating organizations commented on the significance of the latest CCIF initiative.
