The United States Power Grid
The national power grid is a critical part of the nation's infrastructure. It's ability to provide continuous electricity to over 300 million U.S. residents and numerous businesses daily is a modern marvel of electrical engineering. Although the power gird allows energy to be transported over great distances, the capacity limitations of the system require continuous research and development to improve and maintain the massive network of transmission and distribution lines.  Modernization of the power grid and the search for alternative sources of energy are ongoing and necessary to ensure that the United States  can provide efficient, low cost forms of energy that can be delivered to the infrastructure. 
The demand for power in the United States continues to increase at exponential rates.  The power sector faces several challanges to keep up with the soaring demand for energy.
