If speed-to-the-ball is an important consideration in decarbonization and electrification, then using existing infrastructure ROW for new electric transmission is a must
The United States is on the verge of making a generational investment in its infrastructure. The success or failure of this investment will determine the country’s economic competitiveness in the coming decades.
Coordinated, pro-active and holistic planning will be key to that success. Planning needs to reimagine highways, railways and other existing rights-of-way as infrastructure corridors where electric and communications infrastructure are strategically and safely co-located in the right-of-way (ROW).
