Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the second of four articles on FERC’s 2020 Technical Conference regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the energy industry. Panel II’s topic was “Electricity Demand and Transmission Planning”. Eight panelists responded to the Commission’s questions about how public utility transmission providers intend to manage increased uncertainty in their existing transmission planning processes.
FERC has posted the panel testimonies and the 2020 Technical Conference webcast on their website for further review and commentary. Clients have until August 30, 2020 to return their feedback to the Commission on the original Panel II questions or the proceedings.
