2017 brings unprecedented uncertainty to transmission executives and planners. Integration of renewable energy, the accelerating growth of the duck curve, and the shuttering of large coal plants are driving an uncertain path to regionalization, deployment of energy storage and other non-wires alternatives, and a lack of surety in where long-term investments in transmission can be justified. At the same time, the states are coming to the forefront in pursuing clean energy policies that depend on regional transmission solutions and expansions.
The 9th Annual Transmission Summit West will provide the clearest window into the policy, regulatory and changing operational realities facing the industry, and the business strategies leading executives will pursue to ensure reliability and seize development opportunities.
This Summit will focus on “Transmission Planning in an Uncertain Market”. Leading policymakers, utility and independent transmission executives will discuss the paths forward for regionalization efforts, and where we are heading on interregional studies, regional planning, and FERC Order 1000 projects. They will also provide an inside look at the lessons learned on some of today’s most ambitious transmission projects.
The Transmission Executive Forum West will address “The State of the West and the Transformation of the Electric Sector.” Key executives will discuss how plant closures and the growth of state RPS will drive transmission needs, investment in storage and other non-wires technologies to ensure reliability and enhance flexibility.
Learn how to profit through the most uncertain period in the transmission industry’s history at the 9th Annual Transmission Summit West!
