CRA discusses the importance of power grid modernization

Forbes quoted CRA Vice President Jim McMahon in an article discussing smart grid resilience questions that have arisen following the Texas power outages:

The power outages across Texas reveal an issue that goes far beyond managing transmission lines… Traditional grid planning processes are no longer acceptable as flexible use of the grid is required. A digitized grid that supports a diverse and distributed set of resources is needed to manage through uncertainty. Prioritization is urgently needed, and if these recent events have taught us anything, it’s that now is the time to get serious about prevention and tackle solutions that may not be easy, but that pave the way for grid resilience.”
