ISO Minute: CEO Gordon van Welie explains the four pillars needed for a successful clean energy transition
ISO Minute is a new, occasional series of video clips featuring ISO employees speaking about their experiences working for the region’s independent system operator and supporting the safe and reliable transition to clean energy.
In this ISO Minute, CEO Gordon van Welie discusses the four pillars that are critical to developing and maintaining a clean, decarbonized electric power system:
- Significant amounts of clean energy to power the economy with a greener grid
- Balancing resources that keep electricity supply and demand in equilibrium
- Energy adequacy—a dependable energy supply chain and/or a robust energy reserve to manage through extended periods of severe weather or energy supply constraints
- Robust transmission to integrate renewable resources and move clean electricity to consumers across New England.
