The time to invest in every sector of the energy economy is now, so we can meet today’s needs and deliver tomorrow’s innovation.
The demand for energy keeps growing. The infrastructure we need to deliver it is falling behind, and engineers only give the system a “D+” rating. More than 640,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines in our power grids are at full capacity. A large percentage of our high-pressure natural gas transmission lines are over 40 years old, leaving them vulnerable to catastrophic failures. And over ten years, weather-related outages, coupled with aging infrastructure, cost the U.S. economy almost $33 billion.
