MID-GRID 2035 Workshop – Maximizing the Local Benefits from New Transmission Lines

MID-GRID 2035 Workshop - Accelerating Siting and Deployment of Beneficial Transmission Solutions

Accelerating Siting and Deployment of Beneficial Transmission Solutions

MID-GRID 2035 participants will join a discussion of technological and regulatory approaches for maximizing benefits of transmission development for landowners and local communities and getting beneficial transmission projects planned, approved, and built quickly. Discussion will include opportunities to engage stakeholders upstream in the process—early and often—especially with groups that have often not been adequately represented in past decisions, including rural residents, communities of color, and sovereign Tribal Nations. Participants will also discuss opportunities for unlocking co-benefits via transmission infrastructure deployment and how transmission planning and siting process can be structured to broadly support beneficial outcomes for all stakeholders.
