20th Annual Transmission Summit

March 6-8, 2017 • Washington, D.C.

Site: The Mayflower Hotel
Address: 1127 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. View Map (view map)

The transmission industry faces huge challenges and a growing need for investment. A new Trump Administration has called for trillions in infrastructure investment, but it isn’t clear where electric transmission fits in those plans. Renewable energy is replacing fossil generation on an accelerating basis, increasing system peaks while fueling integration concerns. Regional solutions could enhance system resiliency and economic performance, but the effectiveness of FERC Order 1000 processes is under examination. One thing is certain: both transmission operations and the opportunities for investment will radically change.

Network with policymakers and leading executives at the 20th Annual Transmission Summit as they discuss the policy, regulatory and business strategies they will pursue to seize development opportunities and to assure operational reliability.

Energy Group Partner Larry Eisenstat and Senior Policy Advisor Patricia Alexander are participating in this event. Patricia is the summit chair and will present opening remarks. Larry is the moderator on the topic: "Impacts of New York REV and Other State Initiatives on Deploying Microgrids, Storage and Other DERs." He is also a panelist on the topic: "Reassessing FERC Order 1000 Implementation and Process."
