The Western Governors' Association - Interconnection Transmission Planning and Analysis

The Western Governors' Association in Denver received $12 million for Interconnection Transmission Planning and Analysis. The funds support transmission planning for the country’s three interconnection transmission networks, promoting collaborative long-term analysis and planning for the Eastern, Western and Texas electricity interconnections. This helps States, utilities, grid operators, and others prepare for future growth in energy demand, renewable energy sources, and Smart Grid technologies. This project represents the first-ever effort to take a collaborative, comprehensive look across each of the three transmission interconnections.
