Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the energy industry, has announced its 4th Annual Transmission Summit West 2012, to be held on October 22-24 in San Diego, CA.
The need to deliver power from widespread generation assets is driving investment in vast, new interstate transmission lines. Multiple policies affecting the transmission business are sparking debate regarding the best ways to incent new transmission projects to handle renewables, facilitate energy markets and increase reliability.
One of the biggest policy changes comes from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Their latest order, Order 1000, requires public transmission utilities to plan for and allocate the costs of new projects on a regional and interregional basis. This brings up the question of how FERC’s Order 1000 and other policies will affect the modernization of the transmission business, especially in the West, where there project activities have increased.
Infocast’s 4th Annual Transmission Summit West will provide a window into leading utility and merchant transmission executives’ plans for continuing the transmission build-out in the West. The summit will provide the opportunity to meet and network with other key stakeholders and find solutions to meet the challenges facing transmission business. Participants of this year’s conference include: Clean Line Energy Partners, LLC, Southern California Edison, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the U.S. Department of Energy.
