Under the future Biden administration, we should expect more government efforts towards improving the country’s transmission infrastructure. Since building transmission lines is no easy feat, it will take a lot of expertise and funding, and policy-making for it to be successfully implemented.
The New England states have long promoted regional transmission. Their experiences in planning and implementation alone can tower over the capabilities of other states.
With regional transmission planning, more jobs can be generated within a region, leading to reduced dependence on natural gas.
One of the most difficult challenges in transmission infrastructure is the massive costs. Fortunately, there have been government mandates to focus on offshore wind systems.
There are many undertakings that the Biden administration will deal with in terms of developing transmission lines. Aside from formulating more efficient technologies and more effective approaches, there is also employed, which is one of the primary factors that most states are considering before getting on board.
