Attend Transmission Summit West to hear from key executives from CAISO, PacifiCorp, Idaho Power, PSE and more.
Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 09, 2016
Infocast’s 8th Annual Transmission Summit West returns to San Diego this September 26-28 to once again gather senior executives from the largest and most active transmission owning and developing companies in the West. Attendees will discuss the biggest challenges and emerging opportunities in the electric transmission industry, and examine the current state of the business landscape.
The Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) initiated by Pacificorp and CAISO continues to rapidly expand. Puget Sound Energy (PSE) is the latest utility looking to enter the EIM, joining Pacificorp and NV Energy along with future members APS, Portland General Electric and Idaho Power.
While the EIM has already reduced energy costs by over $65 million and facilitated the integration of many renewable energy assets, many see it as a precursor to a more expansive integration of the western grid. However, many questions remain regarding the governance and benefits of a multi-state body. Other transmission owners are also considering forming an alternate organized market in the West.
Attend Transmission Summit West to hear from key executives from CAISO, PacifiCorp, Idaho Power, PSE and more. They will take the stage to discuss the expansion of the EIM and its role in integrating balancing authorities, and how the EIM and other integration efforts will affect utilities and planners throughout the West.
