CEPM Explainer Series: The Grid 101

The Center for Energy Policy & Management at Washington & Jefferson College is excited to release the third article in its new explainer series on energy and environmental topics.

This explainer discusses the interconnected grid system, providing information on the history, modern process, control, and future of the grid.

These explainers seek to provide stakeholders, including local and state policymakers and the public, with a comprehensive, yet succinct, examination of a wide range of relevant and emerging topics. It is the Center’s hope that this information will aid in bridging the knowledge gap in complex energy and environmental matters, equipping all stakeholders with the information necessary to make better-informed decisions.

The Center welcomes suggestions and recommendations on topics for future explainers. Suggestions, comments, or questions can be sent to
