Welcome to the latest edition of the Energy Recap. This week, we wanted to direct readers to an interesting article that discusses the viability of national energy grid. A new study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) was put together in order to "identify cost-effective options for upgrading the U.S. electric grid to create a more integrated power system that can drive economic growth and increase efficient development and utilization of the nation's abundant energy resources, including solar, wind, and natural gas."
