Energy Department Releases Updated Report on Grid Improvement Solutions

Secretary Granholm says the nation’s transmission and distribution lines are overdue for an upgrade.

The Department of Energy (DOE) released the tenth installment of its grid development “Liftoff” report, focusing on short-term solutions to increase energy grid capacity. After analyzing pre-existing energy infrastructure and technology, the report concludes that enhanced transmission conductors and automation systems can be used over the next five years to tap into extra grid energy while long-term solutions are developed and implemented. 

“The majority of the nation’s transmission and distribution lines are drastically overdue for an upgrade, which is why President Biden’s Investing in America agenda is so critical to bring the grid up to date,” said Secretary Jennifer Granholm. “DOE’s new Innovative Grid Deployment Liftoff report outlines the existing tools that can be deployed in less than five years to modernize the nation’s power sector making it more secure and reliable to deliver cheaper, cleaner power to American consumers.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for the energy secretary and U.S. energy personnel as they seek to modernize the country’s power sector.
  • For the president and his energy advisors to be led by God in their pursuit of updates to energy production and transmission.
