It is no secret that the electric grid in the U.S. (and other countries) is not only fragile but failing. For example, extreme weather in Texas earlier shut down millions of homes and businesses.

As the U.S. Congress accelerates the negotiations around a massive infrastructure bill, which as part of the economic recovery could be as large as $2 trillion, it is mission-critical to upgrade the American power grid as a fundamental part of supporting the growth of manufacturing and industrial innovation, advancement of smart cities and schools, and delivering broadband and other services to rural communities.
