GridWise Alliance launches 'Grid of the Future' plan

Sponsored by

The GridWise Alliance, a coalition advocating for the modernization of the nation’s electric system, announced the launch of its Grid of the Future Transitional Action Plan. With input from its members, the GridWise Alliance will develop a series of four prescriptive reports that provide an informed perspective, roadmap and set of recommendations for grid and energy delivery transformation.

The Action Plan Reports will represent members’ points of view on the practical steps, best practices, regulatory changes and metrics to drive progress in grid modernization.

The reports will cover key areas requiring transformation, including “The Future Role of the Grid,” “The Utility Business Model of the Future,” “The Regulatory Model of the Future,” and “The Path Forward: Transition to the Future.” The GridWise Alliance will develop the Action Plan Reports over the next 12 to 24 months.

The Grid of the Future Transitional Action Plan builds on the success of the “Future of the Grid” workshops hosted by the GridWise Alliance and the U.S. Department of Energy over the past nine months. The workshops focused on developing a vision of the role of the grid and grid operators in the year 2030.
