Description (excerpt):

Effective transmission planning is essential for providing customers with affordable and reliable power. This report evaluates transmission planning performance and practices by region. Overall the grades leave a lot of room for improvement. In this first installment of what we expect to be a regular update, this 2023 issue provides a baseline from which future progress can be compared. California and the Midwest (MISO) score the highest with efforts just over the last two years to proactively plan for the future resource mix. The Southeast region shows the greatest room for growth, while the west (minus California), mid-Atlantic (PJM), New England (ISO-NE), and Texas are also lagging in their planning and development efforts.

This report is intended to begin conversations about how each region can improve its transmission planning and development. We hope parties in each region can see positive examples in other ones from which they might learn. Our intent is not to criticize. Instead, we aim to show that good performance is possible and achievable, and all regions can improve to reach an ‘A’ grade in the coming years.
