RPS Webinar: Regional Transmission Planning in the East
Thursday, October 6, 2011 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
This is one in a series of two webinars offered by the State-Federal RPS Collaborative on regional transmission planning and its potential impact on renewables. The regional transmission planning processes that are currently underway in the eastern and the western United States could shape the future of long-distance electricity transmission and significantly affect the future of renewable energy. It is important for policymakers and regulators who are involved in administering state RPS policies to understand how RPSs may be affected by these regional planning efforts.
This webinar presents information about the planning efforts being undertaken by the Eastern Interconnection Planning Collaborative (EIPC) and the Eastern Interconnection States’ Planning Council (EISPC). Guest speakers include EISPC Executive Director Marya White and EIPC Executive Director David Whiteley.
