Transmission Lines in the Midwest

The Energy Future Coalition, in cooperation with the National Clean Energy Transmission Initiative, is planning two clean energy transmission community forums this summer – one in Des Moines, Iowa and the other in Portland, Oregon.

Both events will be expert forums on the critical role of transmission in enabling the development of renewable energy resources such as wind, solar, and geothermal. Leading national and regional experts on renewable energy and transmission will discuss key issues in renewable transmission including planning, cost allocation, and siting, as well as the roles for local, state, regional, and federal actors. Participants include representatives from a broad range of organizations such as electric utilities, environmental interest groups, elected officials, businesses, and labor unions.

The first event will be held in Des Moines, Iowa, although the date is to be determined. This event is organized by The Energy Future Coalition in cooperation with the Iowa Environmental Council, ITC Holdings, Wind on the Wires, the American Wind Energy Association and Fresh Energy.

The second event will be held on July 14th in Portland, Oregon. The Energy Future Coalition, in cooperation with the Renewable Northwest Project, Climate Solutions and the Northwest Energy Coalition, is hosting
