“The nation’s aging electrical grid is in need of improvements to handle immense changes ahead. Thankfully, the Grid Modernization Research and Development Act recognizes and fosters opportunities for U.S. science and innovation as we update our energy infrastructure,” said Sam Gomberg, senior energy analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists. “By calling on the R&D powerhouse that is the U.S. Department of Energy, the legislation forges a pathway forward to develop and deploy more renewable energy technologies, increase electrification of buildings and vehicles, and facilitate a more resilient, climate-smart grid that is ready for what the future brings.”
