    Electric transmission planning is changing remarkably, in response to FERC initiatives intended to open competition in wholesale markets. A first major step was ensuring robust competition among electric generators and opening new opportunities for merchant generators. Gradually, those efforts have been augmented through changes intended to bring the benefits of competition to transmission itself, by inviting competition among builders and maintainers of transmission assets and enabling new merchant transmission developers. This Webinar explores some of the early examples that are demonstrating how transmission planning and procurement options are advancing into the new territories of merchant transmission development.
