Greening the Grid: An Overview of the Greening of the U.S. Generation Fleet

The “greening of the grid” is well underway due to trends toward increased use of natural gas, more use of renewable power, and less use of coal-fired power.

Todd Williams, partner and fossil practice co-leader at ScottMadden, presented on Greening the Grid, a study of the trends and drivers impacting the United States electric grid and its movement towards renewable energy. The presentation examined the drivers moving the United States electric generation fleet increasingly towards renewables and future considerations to maintain the electric grid.

“We have already started down the path to a more greener electric grid. Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), the economics of building new generation, and customer preference are all key drivers moving the United States towards renewable energy,” said Mr. Williams. “It was a privilege to present at this conference. PennWell always puts together excellent conferences for professionals working in electric generation.”
