Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer, has announced the 17th Annual Transmission Summit scheduled on March 12-14, 2014, at the Almas Temple Club in Washington, DC.
The transmission industry is changing radically. Policy developments have not only opened up competition for transmission project developments in many regions, but are also fostering interregional planning and joint ventures between utilities and independent transcos. The expansion of distributed generation and potential reductions in ROE threaten traditional centralized utilities, but transmission owners are looking to expand outside their traditional territories and invest in microgrids and other system enhancements. State commissions are not only considering rate recovery for traditional transmission investments, but also for alternative technologies and system hardening to address resiliency concerns. ISOs and utilities are dealing with a sea change in the generation mix—the switch from coal-fired to gas-fired generation is triggering billions of dollars in new transmission investment while simultaneously raising concerns regarding reliability.
Now in its seventeenth year, Infocast’s Transmission Summit is the premier gathering place for the transmission industry. The Summit will once again bring policy-makers together with senior executives to discuss how to transform their companies to seize the business opportunities in a changing power industry.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to strategize and make important contacts with Utilities and Independent Transcos, EPCs, Engineering and Environmental Consultants, Transmission Equipment Providers and State and Federal Regulators.
