The WATT Coalition issued a press release today: The U.S. Electric Grid Can Rise to Meet Paris Agreement Ambitions.
It explains how Grid-Enhancing Technologies unlock the full system capacity of the transmission network by increasing the utilization of existing lines, to the benefit of the environment and electric consumer rates. These technologies are held back by misaligned incentives, but FERC is looking to correct that, with a workshop on September 10 exploring shared-savings incentives.
I hope that transmission planners will be engaged on this issue as we all work to achieve our country's commitment to the Paris Agreement.
