Unlocking the Queue
Improving grid operations could enable thousands of new renewable energy projects across the country - the technologies exist today and are ready for deployment.

Join Representative Kathy Castor, Chair of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, and a panel of experts on transmission planning and operations to explore how Grid-Enhancing Technologies (GETs) can unlock new clean energy potential.

This event marks the release of Unlocking the Queue, an in-depth report by The Brattle Group studying the impacts of GETs to accelerate renewable development, focusing on Kansas and Oklahoma as a case study. The report quantifies the benefits of GETs on new renewable energy development, local jobs, cost savings, and carbon emissions. Unlocking the Queue uses a sophisticated model for the regional case-study and uses the findings to estimate national impact.

The event and the report are sponsored by the WATT Coalition.
