Webinar: Multi-value Transmission Planning for a Decarbonized Future
May 12, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Featured Speakers: Derek Stenclik, Founding Partner, Telos Energy; Ryan Deyoe, Power Markets Specialist, Telos Energy
About the Webinar: Underlying any renewable energy or decarbonization goal should be a robust transmission planning framework. This webinar will present the results, findings, and recommendations from ESIG’s Transmission Benefits Task Force. The recently conducted study and forthcoming report will provide valuable insights on multi-value frameworks for transmission planning, a key component of the recent FERC NOPR. The task force conducted a transmission planning exercise for ERCOT, evaluating benefits of increasing the West Texas Export transfer capability as well as interregional transmission upgrades to neighboring systems. Using the ERCOT system as an illustrative case study, the webinar will explore how to quantify production cost, emissions, renewable enablement, risk mitigation, resource adequacy, and resilience benefits to better evaluate new transmission projects.
