During the last quarter, there was an increased focus on a range of projects aimed at supporting grid modernization. This was evident in the latest updates from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) with respect to funding provided under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). It also appeared at the state level, with various states submitting grid-modernization plans. Some states focused on a range of initiatives supporting improvements in several aspects of grid performance, including both reliability and resilience. Globally, similar trends are evident in regulatory bodies’ priorities. We expect this theme to continue in future quarters.
