Report: Interstate Strategies for Transmission Planning and Expansion

Abstract

The NGA Task Force on Electricity Infrastructure was formed in the fall of 2001 to develop recommendations for revitalizing the nation’s electricity infrastructure. Task Force members were charged with examining policy challenges in three areas: generation capacity, transmission capacity, and the growth of regional electricity markets. Reflecting the rapid changes that are occurring in interstate transmission policies and industry formations, the Task Force examined this area first. The Task Force prepared this report to provide the nation’s governors with timely recommendations on interstate transmission planning and expansion. The Task Force on Electricity Infrastructure is a two-year project funded through a Cooperative Agreement between the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the U.S. Department of Energy. Governors’ appointees from sixteen states serve on the Task Force. A Steering Committee consisting of four governors provides broad direction for Task Force activities. The recommendations in this report should not be considered NGA policy. Task Force on Electricity Infrastructure recommendations may be considered for adoption as NGA policy by the

NGA Natural Resources Committee.
