Webinar: February 8, 1 pm ET
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is preparing to act to modernize transmission line ratings, which will have a significant impact on renewable energy development. Join Grid Strategies expert Jay Caspary for an overview of line rating methodologies, their impact on grid operations and consumer energy values, and discussion of FERC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking “to improve the accuracy and transparency of transmission line ratings.”
