A Roadmap to the CAISO Transmission Planning Process

Authors: Jon Wellinghoff, Kerinia Cusick, Lorenzo Kristov, and Ernesto Enriquez

The objective of this report is twofold:

  • To understand CAISO’s transmission planning process and limitations or constraints that lead the CAISO towards selecting traditional, “wires-based” solutions.
  • To identify adjustments required to enable new processes that augment CAISO’s options, and allow the CAISO to select alternatives such as renewable distributed generation, energy storage and load control, all of which fall into the category of preferred resources in California.
