Grid:

Boucher, Hébert say Congress should actively address grid reliability

What can policymakers do to make the electric grid more flexible and resilient to hiccups? During today's OnPoint, former Congressman Rick Boucher (D-Va.) and former FERC Chairman Curt Hébert discuss a new report focused on the policies that can improve grid reliability. Boucher and Hébert, who are co-chairmen of the Bipartisan Policy Center's Electric Grid Initiative, explain why they believe policymakers need to re-evaluate their thinking on the electric grid and discuss the role coal and clean energy should play moving forward.
