Event description

Description

Background: Since the early 1900s, high-voltage electric transmission infrastructure has been the backbone of most of the world’s power grids. By transporting bulk power generation to load centers across large geographic areas, transmission networks leverage economies of scale to deliver electricity to consumers at a lower cost than could otherwise have been achieved. Today, as power systems across the world experience transformational changes in technology, economics, and regulation, transmission systems continue to play an indispensable and integral role of delivering affordable, clean, reliable, resilient energy to customers. The role of transmission, however, is evolving, and traditional boundaries separating transmission and distribution systems and stakeholders are being redefined. Against this backdrop, a coalition of industry associations invite interested stakeholders to participate in a two-day public discussion with a global perspective on the future of electric transmission in the 21st century.

This forum will provide an opportunity to discuss:

  • strategies for maximizing value from existing transmission assets, as well as for financing and building new electric transmission infrastructure;
  • opportunities and barriers to greater regional and international regional interconnection;
  • how innovation is reshaping the planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of transmission assets;
  • ongoing trends regarding strengthening the security and resilience of transmission infrastructure;
  • the changing relationship between transmission and distribution networks, and the role of transmission in a high-distributed energy resources future;
  • experiences learned in North America, Asia, Europe, and other regions around the world on rate reform and other regulatory challenges; and
  • strategies for communicating the value of transmission networks to investors, customers, government officials, and other stakeholders.
