In this talk, we jump across the pond to dive deep into the dynamic landscape of the US power system. The discussion will explore how the accelerating shift towards renewable energy resources along with recent legislation like the Inflation Reduction Act is impacting the grid, highlighting active areas of research like congestion management, advanced transmission technologies, and generation interconnection. We also address the pressing need for improving grid reliability and resilience in the face of growing climate uncertainty. A key theme emerges – an increasingly intricate interplay between the different forces shaping our complex energy system – with valuable insights into the future of power grids not only in the US, but in Europe and globally.
