White House official: Power grid upgrades needed to mitigate extreme weather | The Hill's E2-Wire

White House official: Power grid upgrades needed to mitigate extreme weather | The Hill's E2-Wire | MP library | Scoop.it

Predictions of continued extreme weather events heighten the need to upgrade the United States’ electricity grid, a White House official said Tuesday.

 

John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, said occurrences such as Hurricane Sandy underscore the vulnerability of the nation’s electricity delivery system.

 

Failing to strengthen the grid with new technology would continue to subject communities to prolonged power outages, Holdren said at the White House-hosted event.

 

By warning of scientists' forecasts of more frequent extreme weather events, Holdren hinted at the connection President Obama made between such incidents and climate change during his January inaugural address. 

 

While some climate scientists have been skeptical of directly linking the two, they generally agree that climate change has made extreme weather events more intense.

 

Holdren said “smart grid" devices would provide the necessary resiliency to withstand major storms.

 

"Smart grid" devices include a range of widgets and services that communicate with each other and electric utilities through the Internet, rather than proprietary networks erected by utilities.

We must bridge rural digital divide in America | The Hill's Congress Blog

We must bridge rural digital divide in America | The Hill's Congress Blog | MP library | Scoop.it

t’s often said that success has a thousand parents, but that failure is an orphan. But in today’s strange political climate, it seems failure also has plenty of paternity.  
 
The political right wants to ape European-style fiscal austerity to cure our national debt – a policy that has been disastrous in Europe – while some on the very far left want to adopt the European Union’s (EU) policies on the broadband Internet.  And while both are wrong, the dangers of the EU broadband Internet approach are slightly less obvious.

 

Simply put, Europe’s broadband experiment has been a failure, relying mostly on forcing taxpayers to underwrite massive investments in what are second rate broadband networks and to then induce competition by allowing rivals to rent part of the network at subsidized rates. As a result, the pace of network investment has been glacial – and so are the speeds. Only half of European Union citizens can access download speeds of at least 30 megabits/second.  
 
And while some of the old-school uber-regulators claimed that this would spur more competition than in the U.S. – where we have the fastest peak connection speeds, on average, of any similarly-sized country in the world, financed entirely by private investment – the competitive and innovative environment has been almost Soviet-like in its results.
 
Millions of consumers are stuck with no choice of broadband technology – 93 percent of French broadband connections are through DSL. Not surprisingly, the European Commission recently declared its preference for the American model of encouraging private investment in competitive fiber networks.
 
In fact, the story here in the U.S. has been largely positive since President Clinton signed the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Until then, the telephone companies dominated the high-speed Internet business and few families could afford anything other than dial up. Even those of us who didn’t support the legislation (and I was certainly among those), would likely concede increased competition between telephone, cable, wireless and satellite facilities.
