Transmission & Interconnection Summit - Presented by Infocast

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

Hear How the Newly Announced Transmission NOPR and DOE Funding Drive Grid Expansion to Support the Clean Energy Transition

In response to Federal, state and corporate commitments to clean energy plans, a new era is dawning for transmission development and for the interconnection of renewable energy projects. FERC’s newly announced NOPR looks to drive the most substantial changes seen in decades to transmission planning, cost allocation and funding mechanisms, while an interconnection NOPR likely will follow. The DOE has also developed a plan to reduce barriers to high-voltage transmission projects that includes $20B in funding and a new Building a Better Grid Initiative to implement provisions in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. These are certain to create significant opportunities for investment in regional transmission, for the introduction of advanced technologies to existing networks, and for renewable projects to be more rapidly interconnected to the grid. The transmission market is poised for huge growth—but understanding how these massive changes will play out is essential for nearly every generation developer, grid owner and operator to position themselves to profit under this new regime.

Transmission & Interconnection Summit 2022 will bring together the policymakers, senior executives and leading experts working to reimagine interconnection and transmission planning processes to meet the needs of the clean energy transition. They will address the potential solutions to generation interconnection procedure reforms, optimizing planning processes and more holistically allocating costs based on benefits yielded for both system loads and new generation, including:

  • How will the move to longer-term planning affect building transmission to serve large amounts of renewable generation development?
  • How will the expansion of state involvement in regional and local siting processes reduce the time needed to implement transmission projects?
  • What are the most effective ways to incorporate extreme weather resilience, offshore wind, grid-enhancing technologies and battery storage in transmission planning and operations?
  • Are reforms needed to improve the coordination between the regional transmission planning and cost allocation and generator interconnection processes?
  • Could participant funding of interconnection-related network upgrades may be proven to be unjust and unreasonable?

Attend the Transmission & Interconnection Summit 2022 and get the answers you need to fully participate in the remarkable business and investment opportunities of the new era. Review our carefully researched agenda and remarkable faculty and reserve your place today!
