Panel: Transmission, Constraints and an Endless Wait | Feb. 9, 2023 at 3:30 pm
Rising electricity costs and the increase in renewable energy projects being built are causing a change in transmission needs, and challenges are ever more present as projects are being built away from existing load centers. As ISO’s struggle to keep up with growing queue requests and developers are saddled with significant timeframes and costs, a solution is needed. Hear from experts in the transmission field across the nation as they discuss ways to address some of these challenges. Our panelists will discuss:
- The differences between the transmission ISOs and RTOs;
- The challenges faced with large numbers of oncoming renewable energy projects;
- How companies are addressing the queue timelines with energy development in PJM and MISO spaces;
- The proposed PJM reform and how it may influence other ISOs and RTOs
