New Energy Infrastructure and the Green Transition

America’s energy infrastructure needs investment to maintain its effectiveness and meet new market needs. Any transition to a greener electricity sector will require construction of an enormous amount of new renewable generation and the transmission lines necessary to get that power to market. Siting energy infrastructure has become increasingly difficult; the social, political and regulatory barriers to entry are high in many places. These conversations discuss scholarship that address those issues.
