Transmission Time: Using Co-Location to Expand the Grid

July 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

On Wednesday, July 26, ACEG and NextGen Highways hosted a webinar exploring efforts to develop new transmission lines along existing rights-of-way (ROWs).

The U.S. needs to rapidly expand its transmission system to connect new renewable resources, meet rising demand, and improve electric reliability. Speakers discussed how strategic co-location of new lines can help leverage existing infrastructure and speed vital development. This included a look at ongoing efforts to adopt this approach in Wisconsin and an overview of key considerations for developers, state leaders, and communities.

Featured speakers:

  • Bob Fasick — Statewide Right-of-way Permits Engineer, Wisconsin DOT
  • Catherine Reed — Senior Program Director for Electricity, NASEO
  • David Davis — Senior Director for Transmission Regulation and Strategy, Apex Clean Energy
  • Moderated by Matt Prorok — Senior Policy Manager, Great Plains Institute
