AWEA Comments on FERC Inquiry into Grid Enhancing Technologies

Comments and filings

Pursuant to the notice issued by the Commission on January 17, 2020, in Docket No. AD19-19-000, AWEA offers these post-technical conference comments. AWEA continues to support the Commission’s examination of its transmission incentives policies, with particular focus – consistent with Congressional direction – on “encourag[ing] deployment of transmission technologies and other measures to increase the capacity and efficiency of existing transmission facilities and improv[ing] the operation of the facilities.” The record in this proceeding, including the November technical conference on Grid Enhancing Technologies, strongly indicates that a range of technologies are ready for broad, rapid deployment in a supportive policy environment.
