Connect21 is a framework that links customer needs and policy goals with technology and market solutions.

Bringing Connect21 to life

Anything worth having is worth working hard for – and bringing America’s energy network into the 21st century not only qualifies, it’s very doable. We believe our Connect21 vision advances America’s natural gas and electricity infrastructure beyond its 20thcentury limitations to create a more customer-centric, resilient, agile, efficient, and environmentally-sound energy network.

By embracing policy and technological innovation, this initiative will drive improved energy productivity, create jobs and strengthen local economies. That’s worth working for, and we in America’s energy community stand ready to roll up our sleeves.
