We discuss key regulatory trends and strategies to consider when pursing US transmission and interconnection opportunities.
Renewable energy production has grown at an exponential clip over the past decade, with continued strong expansion expected because of declining costs, numerous governmental incentives, and long-term decarbonization policies. This trend has driven a tremendous demand for new transmission infrastructure in the US and globally, yet new transmission lines often take years to develop due to regulatory hurdles and litigation challenges.
An unprecedented investment in transmission will be needed over upcoming decades to keep pace with demand and meet decarbonization goals. Companies and investors will need to factor into their strategies these key regulatory trends when pursuing US and global transmission and generator interconnection opportunities.
In an in-depth webcast, we discussed:
- Current US policy
- Transmission importance case studies
- Recent regulatory reforms for project permitting
- FERC Interconnection Improvements Rule
