Powering America Hearing Series
Today, the nation’s electricity industry is undergoing a period of transformation due to technological innovation and market competition, creating tremendous benefits to American consumers. U.S. electricity prices are low, employment within the energy sector continues to rise, and advanced technologies are giving consumers more control over how they interact with the grid. With that said, the electricity system isn’t perfect and is facing dynamic changes and an uncertain future.
The Powering America series will explore electricity markets, electricity generation, distribution, consumption, and the resiliency of the electric grid. The committee has been proactively engaged with all stakeholders in meaningful discussion on how to strengthen the grid and how to provide greater value to American consumers both now and in the future.
