5 Key Steps to Secure the US Electricity Supply :

.


Flick a switch, push a button, “Ask Alexa” and your need is instantly met with electricity. We take this ubiquitous resource for granted – a synchronized, nationwide machine that meets the immediate needs of hundreds of millions of users.

Unlike fuels, however, electricity currently lacks the large-scale storage that would enable its ongoing use in extended supply disruptions. This – and electricity’s foundational role for all other infrastructures – considerably ups the ante for grid reliability.

There’s no “taking the day off” when it comes to electricity – even in midst of COVID-19. That’s why the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency recently declared essential workers “who maintain, ensure, or restore the generation, transmission, and distribution of electric power, including call centers, utility workers, reliability engineers and fleet maintenance technicians.”

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the health care providers who are saving lives every day, but all the essential workers in our economy – including our utility workers – also deserve our thanks. We can reward their dedication and invest in our future by committing now to a 21st century electricity grid – one we will ask even more of tomorrow than we do today. We are spending far too much money on this crisis to do less.
