Few people know more about the policies that shape the US grid than Rob Gramlich, the founder and president of Grid Strategies. With more and more renewables coming online (and interconnection queues getting longer and longer), Rob joins the show to talk about all the challenges the US grid is facing and what can be done to overcome them.

Rob also delves into the details of what is in the infrastructure bills currently circulating around Capitol Hill. What are the ‘must-haves’ that need to be in the legislation? And what are some things the bills should include, but don’t.

I also throw a couple dinner party questions at Rob. As in, what information about the grid does he share when he is at a dinner party full of grid newbies? And what do grid gurus talk about when they all gather around the dinner table?
