Experts speaking on Capitol Hill about regulatory and policy issues affecting the nation's electric power system. Investment in electric transmission infrastructure is among the nation's highest energy priorities because a strong grid facilitates development of alternative generation resources, promotes a liquid wholesale power market with minimal congestion and market power, improves reliability and energy security, and advances energy independence overall.
