The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) co-sponsored a congressional briefing with GridWise Alliance in conjunction with the Grid Innovation Caucus to discuss the importance of modern electrical systems for American infrastructure. "Now is the time to invest in modern electrical and energy systems to make our nation's energy infrastructure safer, more reliable, and highly efficient. By incorporating the latest innovations such as energy storage, smart meters, microgrids, and advanced transmission technologies, we can modernize our grid while simultaneously creating valuable manufacturing jobs," said NEMA President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff.

"Together with the GridWise Alliance, and with the support of the Congressional Grid Innovation Caucus' Co-Chairs, Congressmen Bob Latta (R-Ohio) and Jerry McNerney (D-California), we will continue highlighting the importance of emerging technologies, as well as identify key steps that Congress should take to help modernize our critical infrastructure. For instance, Congress should enact policies to streamline the process for planning, permitting, and construction."

Marc Lemmond of IBM and Anne Vogel of American Electric Power joined Patrick Hughes of NEMA to speak about the importance of modern grid technologies and services to optimize the performance of our electric system, and the role that electrical infrastructure plays in the current conversation around reinvesting in American infrastructure.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) represents nearly 350 electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers that make safe, reliable and efficient products and systems. Our combined industries account for 360,000 American jobs in more than 7,000 facilities covering every state. Our industry produces $106 billion shipments of electrical equipment and medical imaging technologies per year with $36 billion exports.
