Question 2: How can we best address reliability challenges while still making meaningful progress towards a cleaner energy system? Reply
"The "old" grid assumes there is variable demand and that the supply must be available to meet it. But the 'new' grid will have variable demand and supply with each adapting to the other. With this new paradigm and lower cost storage solutionsplus more distributed generationfuture electricity supply will be cheaper, cleaner, and more reliable." Dan Miller, The Roda Group
Question 3: Do you believe that federal clean energy policies are required to fully decarbonize? Reply
"The only way around federal policy change is to build sufficient private market collaboration (consortiums, etc.) to develop 100s of new merchant transmission lines.... I’m working on developing a consortium for just such a private merchant transmission network...."
