The event will convene the nation’s top regulators, renewable, storage and transmission companies, and other leading grid experts. Speakers will explore the roles of administrative orders and actions; infrastructure policy; regional and state developments; interconnection process reform; accelerating the deployment and integration of battery storage and hybrids; status of transmission initiatives at DOE, FERC and Congress; and strategies to help maintain reliability and resilience on the path to decarbonisation. FERC Chairman Richard Glick and Director of DOE’s Grid Deployment Office Maria Robinson will provide keynote addresses.

“To realise the full potential of the IRA, there is a dire need to expand and upgrade the nation’s outdated and balkanised transmission infrastructure” said ACORE President and CEO Gregory Wetstone. “The current US grid cannot effectively move energy from America’s rich renewable resource areas to the population centers with the greatest electricity demand. At the ACORE Grid Forum, we will explore the necessary solutions to achieving a decarbonised American electricity grid.”
