The US electricity transmission grid comprises more than 321,869 kilometers (km) (200,000 miles (mi)) of High-Voltage (HV) transmission lines. The country is currently undergoing a major revamp of its aging Transmission and Distribution (T&D) infrastructure due to rising electricity demand and the growth of renewable energy assets, assisted by increased government support. During the 2000–2010 period, $74.8 billion was invested in transmission systems (STI, 2010). A total of $14.8 billion was invested in transmission infrastructure in 2012 alone, with a projected investment of an additional $64.2 billion through 2016 (EEI, 2012). The major areas of spending in transmission line projects are line facility costs (77%), project management and construction costs (3%), and separate costs (20%). Many projects are in various stages of development and construction, and the key engineering, procurement and construction players are Bechtel Power Corporation, Abengoa, WorleyParsons, CG Power, and MasTec.
