Electric Transmission: Enabling a Smart Grid

Mason Willrich, Board Chair, California Independent System Operator; Director, California Clean Energy Fund; Senior Advisor, MIT Energy Innovation Project

As America continues to develop clean, non-carbon-based electricity, our century-old electric grid is emerging as a major bottleneck. Meanwhile, public-policy oversight of electric power is a hodgepodge of 50 different states’ approaches to regulation. Willrich illustrates the problem, with special insight into California’s situation, and lays out a program for developing a 21st-century system.
