Member Webinar: The Macro Grid Initiative: Can America still build big, beautiful things?
Tuesday, September 15, 2020
10:00 – 11:00 AM EDT
As an increasing number of states, utilities and corporations announce ambitious sustainability goals, many policymakers remain unclear about the critical role of high-voltage transmission – and what stands in the way of getting transmission built. Learn how and why the Macro Grid Initiative is seeking to build a coalition that includes clean energy advocates, labor unions, utilities and corporations to strengthen political support for transmission and grid modernization.
