The Southwest Clean Energy Transmission Summit is the tenth regional summit hosted by Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG), a project of the Energy Future Coalition in Washington, DC. ACEG supports the extension and modernization of the high-voltage grid as essential infrastructure for a modern society and access to the clean energy that will be necessary if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change, and recognizes the regional nature of many of the related issues.
ACEG summits bring together all key stakeholder groups, including utilities, environmental advocates, consumer interests, landowners, state and federal elected officials and regulators, renewable energy producers, and transmission developers, to reach a mutual understanding of the opportunities and barriers confronting the grid, and a consensus that the benefits of moving forward exceed the costs. Panels are often moderated by journalists and bloggers to ensure balanced and non-technical debate, and to promote the education of a larger public audience on these critical issues.
