United States Electricity Transmission Market Report 2022: Federal government announced goal to achieve 100% zero-carbon electricity by 2035 and 30 GW offshore wind by 2030 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Added “Electricity Transmission in USA” report ResearchAndMarkets.com Offer.

This report analyzes historical network growth and future network development and investment plans.

It will provide an overview of the industry structure and discuss the political and regulatory developments affecting grid investments, including offshore wind energy.

The power transmission sector in the US is poised for very significant growth. The federal government has announced ambitious goals: to achieve 100 percent CO2-free electricity by 2035 and 30 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030.

The expansion and modernization of the aging nation and the integration of the regionally isolated power transmission system will be crucial to accommodate the increasing share of renewable energy.

Recent legislation and federal government financial support to modernize power grids, reduce congestion and accelerate permitting will help create the necessary grid infrastructure. Utilities are also preparing to meet the clean energy challenge by formulating plans to improve system resilience and security, and to withstand adverse weather conditions.
