This three-day program features two distinct events:  The Transmission Executive Forum will address Transmission’s Role in the Grid of the Future. Transmission systems, and the business models of their owners and operators, face their largest fundamental challenges in over 100 years. From responding to the demands of rapidly expanding renewable energy and the outside-in pressures of distributed assets, to the practical need to increase capacity without drastically expanding the use of rights of way, the stakes for transmission planners and policy-makers have never been higher. This program will discuss the technologies, techniques and business strategies that will drive success with senior utility and grid technology executives.  At Transmission Summit 2016, senior executives from the largest and most active transmission owning and developing companies in North America will meet to discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the electric transmission industry. 

Larry Eisenstat will moderate a panel: “Grid-Scale and Interconnected Storage” and will serve as a panelist on the topic “EPA CPP as a Driver for Transmission Investment.” Pat Alexander will moderate the panel: "Improving Planning and Cost Allocation of Interregional and Cross-Seam Projects."
