Infrastructure & Resilience
NEMA strongly believes that any plan to repair and update America's infrastructure needs to be comprehensive, modernizing, and realistic. A comprehensive plan will cover traditional physical infrastructure aspects such as roads, bridges, and electricity but also foster forward-looking advanced technologies. A modernizing plan will ensure that America meets its infrastructure needs in the future in addition to patching today’s potholes. Finally, a realistic plan will focus resources on those areas that ensure safety, reliability, and efficiency using proven cost-effective technologies.
NEMA recently issued a White Paper entitled "Electrifying Our Future: Building America’s 21st Century Infrastructure" which lays out the industry’s infrastructure recommendations. The paper helps readers by breaking the electro-industry’s recommendations down into various business segments. Click on the links below for more information and to view the full paper.
