Planning the Grid of the Future

We know that the electric grid will need to be expanded and modernized to achieve Maine’s climate and clean energy goals. This forum will explore the recommendations of a group of Maine stakeholders, examine how other states have approached grid planning, and consider next steps we can take here.

  • How can we better plan for the integration of renewable energy?

  • What role do 'edge users' play?

  • How do we account for increased electric load and two-way power flows?
