NEW TRANSMISSION AND GRID RESILIENCE
WIRES, an international non-profit trade association of investor-, publicly-, and cooperatively owned transmission providers, transmission customers, regional grid managers, and equipment and service companies published a story on May 9 applauding FERC’s proposal that ISOs and RTOs consider the resiliency of the grid in the face of new threats. The article cites details from a recently released report entitled, Recognizing the Role of Transmission in Electric System Resilience, issued by The Brattle Group. This report takes a close look at how new federal policies and investments in transmission will make the grid more resilient. Take a look at the WIRES story here and read the brattle report, here.
