KGPCo Experts Support Grid Mod Initiatives

December 5, 2022

The aging power grid in the United States needs an upgrade.

 The US Department of Energy (DOE) has created the Grid Modernization Initiative (GMI) to define the grid of the future. According to the DOE, a modern grid must have:

  •  Greater RESILIENCE to hazards of all types
  •  Improved RELIABILITY for everyday operations
  •  Enhanced SECURITY from an increasing and evolving number of threats
  •  Additional AFFORDABILITY to maintain our economic prosperity
  •  Superior FLEXIBILITY to respond to the variability and uncertainty of conditions at one or more timescales, including a range of energy futures
  •  Increased SUSTAINABILITY through energy-efficient and renewable resources.

 Why the sudden push to update the grid? The proliferation of mobile technology among Americans, enhanced by the COVID-19 pandemic when millions were forced to work and learn from home, shed an unfavorable light on reliable and affordable electricity service. Natural disasters such as flood, fires and hurricanes also pose a very real threat to an already unstable power grid.

 While policy makers, regulators, and shareholders debate the priorities, outline the details, and count the hurdles standing in the way of modernizing the grid, KGPCo is already hard at work with boots on the ground solving the “How.”
