Changing Resources and Implications for Transmission

March 2014

Transmission Summit 2014

Cristin Lyons, partner and transmission, distribution, and Smart Grid practice leader at ScottMadden, recently presented, “Changing Resources – Implications for Transmission,” at Infocast’s 17th Annual Transmission Summit.

Changes to the generation portfolio, the introduction of significant renewable resources, and the deployment of customer-side resources are fundamentally changing the way electricity is produced and delivered to customers. These changes are having a significant impact on the developments and operation of the transmission system and are occurring in an environment of decreasing demand growth which impacts utility revenues and puts pressure on rates. This presentation examines how they will impact the amount and location of transmission needed, the rates that can be charged for it, and its relative value in a utility’s portfolio assets.
