Why Clean Energy Growth Requires More Transmission
While expanding clean energy is essential, it is important to note that it would not be possible without first restoring and expanding transmission.

We might even need to triple our existing systems by 2050 to meet the larger growing clean electricity demands,” says Maria Robinson, director, grid employment office at the U.S. Department of Energy…”
