Infrastructure Imperative










The demand for power in the United States is increasing at a tremendous rate. Current power generation capacity is unable to meet this ever-increasing demand, resulting in major stress on the power-producing industry and its customer base.

To increase capacity throughout the country, the power industry requires new plant construction, co-generation, better use of emerging technologies and improved transmission and distribution systems. Additionally, the development of renewable energy for distribution on main electricity grid systems has been accelerated over the past 10 years. But this expansion to meet power needs will encounter several challenges, including:

  •  
  • Stringent air and water quality standards
  •  
  • Lack of suitable infrastructure
  •  
  • Decommissioning/upgrade of existing power production facilities.

    Ongoing discussions over plans to deregulate the electric industry on a national scale further complicate the state of the industry. Faced with increased competition, many traditional power producers are facing budget cuts at a time when demand is on the rise.
