The 2035 Report: Reconductoring With Advanced Conductors Can Accelerate The Rapid Transmission Expansion Required For A Clean Grid

Electricity demand is rising and we must cut climate pollution, but more than 2,000 gigawatts of new clean energy projects are stuck waiting in the interconnection queue. If that power is ready to go and so desperately needed, what’s taking so long? One big obstacle stands in the way—lack of transmission access. New research from Energy Innovation, GridLab, and UC Berkeley highlights a new technology that can be part of the solution, along with figuring out how to build new lines faster: reconductoring with advanced conductors.
