The FERC Order 1000 compliance filings have the potential to reshape the transmission development landscape.
Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
Infocast, the leading producer of deal-making and business intelligence events, is pleased to present its Transmission Summit, which will take place in Washington, D.C. this February 25-27. Now in its sixteenth year, the Transmission Summit has established itself as the premier gathering and networking event for the transmission industry.
Transmission is at a unique point of flexion. Investment in line-miles may soon be overtaken by the need to replace aging infrastructure. In addition, modernization of the grid and control rooms to handle increased use of distributed and intermittent energy, demand response and grid-connected energy storage is needed.
The FERC Order 1000 compliance filings have the potential to reshape the transmission development landscape, while the demands of regional projects are driving the growth of joint ventures and independent transcos. The low cost of capital in financial markets offers the potential for a true paradigm shift—it may be cheaper for utilities to project finance transmission than to seek rate recovery.
The Transmission Summit will bring together policy-makers with leading transmission executives to discuss how to seize today's business opportunities, how to move to gas-fired generation, prepare for future paradigm shifts facing the industry as well as examine other major industry trends that will affect transmission development.
