The Midwestern Governors Association held its seventh annual invite-only transmission meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 30-31, 2017.

An important component of modernizing the grid is a “fix it first” approach. The MGA is hosting a conference, Grid Security and Modernization: Hardening the Midwestern Grid. This event was an opportunity to learn how the Midwest is safeguarding and improving the region's electric grid. Topics covered at this meeting included disaster preparedness, micro grids, distributed generation, and cybersecurity.
