Memorable and Meaningful Moments
EEI held its annual briefing on the state of the electric power industry in mid-February. While EEI has been holding these briefings for more than forty years, 2021 marked the first time the event was held virtually. No handshakes, no hallway discussions, no going to lunch.
It's almost a year of virtual meetings, and with the coronavirus vaccine here and more on the way, there is a glimmer of hope that leaders like these from EEI, will soon be seen and heard in person. For now, listen in to these excerpts, and believe that we will be hearing from them in person before long.
President, Edison Electric Institute, Tom Kuhn: I will outline EEI priorities for 2021. Our North Star is serving our customers. We will continue to center our efforts on three main pillars: maintaining the steady and strong transition to clean energy, modernizing the energy grid to make it more dynamic, more resilient, and more secure, and developing the innovative solutions our customers expect and deserve. We are most excited about our clean energy leadership.
For President Biden and his administration, addressing climate change is a top priority. EEI's member companies are well-positioned to be part of the climate solution. We are encouraged there are more policymakers on both sides of the aisle who want to advance clean energy and electric transportation. We look forward to working with them on collaborative, innovative, and bipartisan solutions.
