Competitive transmission development has rapidly increased in response to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission initiatives. Utilities and other transmission developers are expected to spend billions expanding the grid in coming years. Such an investment and the wide variety of stakeholders has increased the controversy about the nature of the projects, the entities that will build them, and the rates they will charge.

Please join us for a one-hour webinar as we discuss the current disputes regarding competitive transmission development.

Topics will include:

  • Recent transmission development models and their success
  • The issues most likely to lead to disputes
  • The role of developer cost caps in developer selection
  • The role of rate proceedings following developer selection
  • The transmission needs that have been overlooked
  • Potential changes in developer incentives
