NCEP: Approaches to Maximizing Existing Transmission Capacity
With myriad analyses showing that expanded interregional transmission would provide benefits to the grid, new policy and regulatory initiatives are revisiting how transmission gets planned, built, and paid for. Most best-case scenarios predict that it will take years for these efforts to bear fruit, however. At the same time, the types of technological advances that have increased resilience and efficiency opportunities for the distribution grid are also available at the transmission level. This webinar will feature a discussion of opportunities to maximize existing transmission line throughput as a near-term complement to planning for and building new transmission. Panelists will describe commercially available grid enhancing technologies that can dramatically increase transmission capacity factors across North America.
