This analysis is written to help transmission planning break out of the past by:

  • Informing interested parties of the emerging business opportunity to propose alternative transmission solutions in ISO/RTO transmission planning proceedings;
  • Analyzing the Federal Power Act and FERC regulations that require review of those alternatives and authorize ISO/RTOs to choose and compensate cost-effective advanced transmission technologies for transmission services; and
  • Identify remaining areas of policy ambiguity and support stakeholders, FERC, ISO/RTOs, and state commission staff working on these issues.
