With the anticipated integration of large volumes of wind generation and potential impacts from greenhouse gas legislation, the evaluation of large-scale transmission proposals is an increasingly complex process with great implications for the efficiency of the power system. While federal policy aims to facilitate needed investment, transmission siting and permitting is receiving increased scrutiny at state and local levels. Bates White uses sophisticated analytical tools to evaluate proposed transmission projects, including impacts on generation asset utilization, locational marginal prices, and the value of financial transmission rights. We assist project proponents and regulators in evaluating the benefits of proposed transmission projects relative to both cost and other transmission and nontransmission alternatives.
