Overview

Throughout North America, the need for new utility projects is projected to grow to improve electricity delivery, increase capacities, improve reliability, and meet new standards associated with incorporating renewable energy generation into the smart grid.

In order to effectively utilize allocated and dedicated funding, it is critical for utilities, developers, sub-contractors, project managers, and suppliers to fully understand efficient utility project cost estimation, as this new infrastructure has substantial costs and risks associated with each project. In fact, new overhead transmission lines can cost $1 million or more per mile. The process of building transmission level projects often takes many years even in the most streamlined process.

In this course, attendees will recognize the critical components to consider in a transmission project estimate. Key components of the course include all factors that impact the final cost of building this infrastructure, including permitting and siting, materials and engineering, construction, and project management.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discuss utility project planning process and budget considerations
  • Discuss the environmental and siting processes and the impact on schedules and costs
  • Analyze engineering and material cost considerations for transmission lines and substations
  • Compare and contrast contracting methods to include design-bid-build vs. OE/EPC
  • Identify strategies to leverage data for future projects and mitigate risks

Who Should Attend

  • Transmission and substation project managers, estimators, and contract managers
  • Transmission and substation engineers
  • Supply chain and cost accounting professionals for utilities and other energy companies
  • Generation project developers and engineers
  • Regulatory agency staff
  • Consultants and engineering firms that work within the electricity transmission sector
