EEI Statement on the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Grid Reliability Study

WASHINGTON, Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement on the U.S. Department of Energy's energy grid reliability study.

"EEI commends the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for undertaking this study to examine key factors that can enhance the resilience of the energy grid, our nation's most critical infrastructure.

"While we are still thoroughly reviewing the study, EEI has long advocated that our customers are best served by public policies that promote a balanced and diverse energy mix, which includes both traditional and renewable energy sources, and that also recognize the vital role 24/7 energy sources play in sustaining a secure, reliable, and resilient energy grid.

"We also believe it is important to value investments in more robust infrastructure, while maintaining a diverse energy mix that eliminates single points of failure. Whether to limit impacts from inevitable storms or natural events or to prepare for malicious cyber or physical attacks, supporting a resilient energy grid is an investment in national and economic security.

"As always, we look forward to working with DOE and the Administration to ensure the reliable delivery of electricity to all customers."

EEI is the association that represents all U.S. investor-owned electric companies. Our members provide electricity for 220 million Americans, and operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
