Energy and Environment

Broadband plays an important role in solving the country’s energy and environmental challenges.  Broadband and advanced communications can impact energy and the environment as the foundation of a smarter electric grid and as a platform for innovation in smart homes and buildings, especially if utilities unlock energy data. Broadband and advanced communications can also make transportation safer, cleaner and more efficient.  For more information, visit the National Broadband Plan.
