The existing electricity infrastructure evolved to its technology composition today from the convolution of several major forces, only one of which was technologically based. Today opportunities and challenges persist in world-wide electric power networks, including reducing transmission congestion, increasing system/cyber security, and increasing overall system and end-use efficiency while maintaining reliability. And many other challenges engage those who plan for the future of the power grid: producing power in a sustainable manner (embracing renewable fuels while accounting for their scalability limitations; e.g., increased use of land and natural resources to produce higher renewable electricity will not be sustainable, and lowering emissions from existing generators), delivering electricity to those who don't have it (not just on the basis of fairness but also because electricity is the most efficient form of energy, especially for things like lighting), using electricity more wisely as a tool of economic development, and pondering the possible revival of advanced nuclear reactor construction.
