DOE Study: Markets and Infrastructure Key to Electric Reliability and Resilience


The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) new report on the U.S. electric grid makes valuable recommendations for expanding access to reliable, low-cost electricity by streamlining approval of electric transmission infrastructure and using markets to procure essential reliability services.

As a low-cost source of energy that can provide reliability services as well as or better than conventional power plants, wind energy will flourish with the expansion of markets and infrastructure.

This report provides an analysis of the DOE’s study and examines the ways wind can help build a more reliable and resilient power system.
