The transmission development landscape is undergoing tectonic shifts. Policy developments have not only opened up competition for transmission project developments in many regions, but also are fostering interregional planning and joint ventures between utilities and independent transcos. State commissions are considering not only 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. All of this will require new capacity, new assets, new expertise and new strategies in the transmission sector.
