Energy Corridor Planning for Increased Electrical Grid Reliability
Track: Electric Utilities
Authors: Jim Kuiper
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 and a 2013 Presidential Memo direct U.S. Federal agencies to streamline the siting, permitting, and review process for transmission projects. We provide an overview of several Argonne projects that support identification, analysis, modeling, and designation of energy corridors. These projects include further designation and analysis of new corridors in the Western Interconnection and development of Web-based corridor analysis tools for the Eastern Interconnection.
