Description (excerpt):

This report updates the 2021 report on ready-to-go transmission grid projects and identifies 36 high-voltage transmission projects that are ready to begin construction in the
near future, including some regional project portfolios comprised of multiple individual
projects. Many of these projects have achieved key regulatory approval milestones and
are ready to begin construction. Many others could benefit from policies that improve
how transmission is paid for and permitted, as some are still waiting for key permits while
many more are still looking for mechanisms to recover the cost of building the project.
While these projects would provide major benefits to electric sector reliability and decarbonization, still many more such projects will be required to cost-effectively meet
our country’s growing electricity needs. Given the long lead time required to permit and
build transmission, improvements to how to plan, pay for, and permit transmission are
urgently needed to enable these projects and more like them to proceed to construction.
