MID-GRID 2035 Workshop -
Generation Fleet Change Pathways and Cost Implications
April 20 @ 8:50 am CDT - Virtual Meeting
MID-GRID 2035 participants will join a discussion of technological and regulatory approaches for maximizing benefits of transmission development for landowners and local communities. Discussion could include opportunities for conducting outreach 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 minimize conflict and broadly support beneficial outcomes for all stakeholders.
