CTC Global Participates at Annual NASEO Meeting

The National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) 2022 Annual Meeting was held in-person October 11-14, 2022 in St. Petersburg, Florida. At this year’s event the focus was on "State Clean Energy Partnerships for Resilience, Affordability, and Growth." State Energy Offices and their private sector partners are poised for action in deploying innovative clean energy solutions across America’s infrastructure.
At a General Session address, “Grid Modernization, Resilience, and Reliability: Making Electricity Sustainable and Affordable,” Maria Robinson, Director of the DOE Grid Deployment Office, discussed the challenges of rapidly decarbonizing the grid given the long transmission construction cycles for new build and re-build solutions. She mentioned “Reconductoring with Advanced Conductors” multiple times as one way to get more capacity for interconnecting clean and renewable generation “almost instantaneously,” to assist with grid decarbonization. 
CTC Global's Director of Public Policy, Mr. David Townley, was on hand to answer questions between sessions and noted that "NASEO meetings offer tremendous opportunity for State Officials to get up to speed on important issues and learn from others what actions are being taken to meet state and national policy goals.” 

Earlier this year a NASEO Board of Directors Resolution on Electric Grid Modernization and Comprehensive Electricity Planning suggested that State Energy Officers “leverage U.S. Department of Energy identified strategies, which includes measures such as reconductoring of power lines with low-sag, low-resistance, high-performance efficient, cost-effective advanced conductors.” Here is a link to the Resolution

CTC Global is 'Walking The Walk'

There is an old expression "Walking the walk or just talking the talk." Loosely translated, this suggests that while some people are busy talking, others are busy doing. In the case of CTC Global, we are busy doing! Here is this month's update:

8 ACCC® Installations completed in the last 30 days with 68 currently underway and 73 more scheduled to start soon

That's a lot more than talk! Why is this happening? Because the ACCC® Conductor delivers the best technical and economic solution for nearly any type or project in any environment. First, its the most highly tested and proven Advanced Conductor commercially available today; Second, Its manufactured by the most experienced 'long-length' pultrusion company in the world - strictly to ASTM B-987 Standards (with no excuses); Third, its benefits by far outweigh its slightly higher 'per meter' cost. And we can show you how. Please reach out via email to: or visit our website at
More Great Sessions at Grid Forward's Annual Meeting in Denver

CTC Global's Director Strategic Accounts, Mr. Jeff Townsend participated in the Grid Forward Annual Meeting in Denver Colorado earlier this month. The meeting's focus “Ensuring a Resilient 21st Century Energy System,” brought together a wide range of energy leaders to explore and advance federal resources and regional developments to harden the grid from disruptions and facilitate a smooth energy transition.

"The past couple years have been unprecedented for the electric grid: from historic and devastating wildfires, record heat levels, ice storms and much more. The federal commitment to advanced grid deployments has reached a new level with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act." The aim of the meeting was to discuss ways to use federal investment for the greatest impact for all segments of society.

Mr. Townsend was on hand to share information about how CTC Global's ACCC® Conductor is helping U.S. Utilities reach these objectives.
