Marc joined Andy Stone on the Energy Policy Now podcast for a conversation about barriers to a clean energy grid and what the FERC in particular is wrestling with to incentivize the transmission infrastructure needed to support that clean energy future.
Listen below for their conversation, including:
- What’s different about the transmission infrastructure we have now (and how we plan for it) and the transmission infrastructure we’ll need in a decarbonized future (and how we plan for it and pay for it)
- The FERC’s recently released Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANOPR) and the several technical conferences held ahead of that aimed at developing a better understanding of the major moving parts behind this new paradigm for regional electric transmission planning, cost allocation, and generator interconnection
- The types of benefits and costs that can be used to evaluate these infrastructure choices
- The role markets can play in shaping our future transmission infrastructure
