The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Electricity (OE) provides leadership to ensure the nation’s energy delivery system is secure, resilient, and reliable. OE works to develop new technologies to improve the infrastructure that brings electricity into our homes, offices, and factories. Through a mix of technology and policy solutions, OE is harnessing innovation for a stronger, more reliable North American energy system.

Access to reliable and cost-effective energy through the electric infrastructure is vital for the economic well-being of this nation and will play an even larger role as we continue to grow with the global digital economy. A modernized electric grid is the key enabler for getting America on a path to an equitable clean energy economy with a 100% clean electricity sector by 2035 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Watch this short video to see how the grid works and learn about OE's work to make electricity affordable and secure for all Americans.
