Challenges facing the Electric Power Transmission Industry

The global electric power transmission industry faces several challenges. New, renewable sources of electric power, growing demand from end users, and significant investment in upgrading existing aging power transmission infrastructure are some major hurdles. One North American Electrical Power Industry Association has reported that new investment in American electrical transmission infrastructure will exceed $50 billion by 2025. That accounts for investments of more than $6 billion per year, over the next eight years.
