The Role of Transmission in the Energy Resource Transition

July 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Please join our Louisiana and Midwest Chapters for this co-sponsored virtual energizer on the The Role of Transmission in the Energy Resource Transition. This two-hour panel will offer a variety of perspectives and an opportunity to earn CLE credit.

Both transmission development and interconnection processes are critical elements in the process of integrating new resources into the grid. Interconnection queues continue to grow, almost exponentially. And substantial transmission build out has been identified as necessary to address both delivery and reliability issues. The panel will explore:

  • How the transmission planning and interconnection processes affect the development and integration on new resources into the grid
  • Recent developments from the perspectives of the grid operator, state regulators, and affected transmission developers
  • FERC initiatives with respect to both transmission planning and interconnection queue reforms as they may affect potential reforms
