Electric Transmission
Transmission Strategy & Competitive Transmission

For several clients, Brattle experts have quantified 20-year transmission investment needs for various regional markets across North America. Through our engagements, we have estimated future transmission investment opportunities driven by public policy, reliability, and economic interests. This includes assessing the new transmission projects required to address renewable energy development, environmental regulations, and generation asset retirements, among other drivers.

In the wake of FERC Order 1000, we have analyzed and evaluated the opportunities and threats posed by competitive transmission development across several regional markets in North America. We have also assisted several merchant transmission developers in due diligence efforts, open solicitation and open season processes, and in planning efforts to determine the optimal timing and size of the project.

We have provided support for clients on these matters through testimony, evaluation of specific projects or initiatives, external discussion papers or reports, and strategic engagement with senior executives.
