NARUC-NASEO Webinar on Transmission Planning Coordination in Comprehensive Electricity Planning

July 7, 2020, 4:00 - 5:30 PM ET

The NARUC NASEO Comprehensive Electricity Planning Task Force hosted a webinar on Tuesday July 7, 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. EDT. This webinar focused on key issues related to coordination between distribution planning, resource planning, and utility and RTO transmission planning processes. Speakers shared experiences and real-world examples of how DER growth affects transmission planning; how DERs are used to meet or offset transmission needs; and how states, utilities, and RTOs can coordinate planning to meet future goals for the electricity system.
