Discuss Electric Transmission Challenges & Opportunities with Industry Leaders
The transmission industry faces huge challenges and a growing need for investment. A new Trump Administration has called for trillions in infrastructure investment, but it isn’t clear where electric transmission fits in those plans. Renewable energy is replacing fossil generation on an accelerating basis, increasing system peaks while fueling integration concerns. Regional solutions could enhance system resiliency and economic performance, but the effectiveness of FERC Order 1000 processes is under examination. One thing is certain: both transmission operations and the opportunities for investment will radically change.
Network with policymakers and leading executives at the 20th Annual Transmission Summit as they discuss the policy, regulatory and business strategies they will pursue to seize development opportunities and to assure operational reliability.
Two distinct events are featured:
The Transmission Executive Forum, March 6, 2017, will address Impacts of the Shift to Distributed Resources on Transmission Planning and Operations. The New York REV and other initiatives are driving deployment of microgrids, energy storage and other DERs. The Forum will discuss how the confluence of distribution and transmission systems is affecting not only the long-term viability of transmission projects but also grid planning and modernization.
At Transmission Summit 2017 policymakers and senior executives will discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the electric transmission industry. Far-ranging discussions of today’s most pertinent issues, from regional expansion to technology innovation to maximizing the flexibility and capacity of rights-of-way will point the way to the best directions for future investment and operational strategies.
