A key prerequisite to Modernize the grid is to make it smarter and more resilient through the use of cutting-edge technologies, equipment and controls systems. Consumers can better manage their own energy consumption and costs because they have easier access to their own data. Utilities also benefit from a modernized grid, including improved security, reduced peak loads, increased integration of renewables, and lower operational costs.

The discussions will be focused on, to strengthen, transform, and improve energy grid infrastructure to ensure access to reliable, secure, and clean sources of energy.
