Beginning on Monday, December 5, 2022, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will host a two-day, staff-led workshop on interregional transfer capability requirements for public utility transmission providers. FERC issued a notice on October 6, 2022, in Docket No. AD23-3-000 indicating that the workshop will be held December 5th and 6th, 2022, from approximately 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The workshop will take place virtually with remote participation from both presenters and attendees. Details on remote attendance and participation will be released prior to the workshop.

At the workshop, FERC will consider the question of whether and how to establish a minimum requirement for interregional transfer capability. Topics for discussion may include how to identify the purpose and value of setting a minimum requirement for interregional transfer capability; how to develop appropriate criteria, metrics, and models to establish a minimum requirement for interregional transfer capability; the transmission planning horizon and minimum interregional transfer capability requirements; whether operational agreements currently act as a barrier to interregional transfer capability; and how the costs of transmission facilities identified to achieve a minimum requirement for interregional transfer capability should be allocated between and/or within public utility transmission providers’ transmission planning regions.

Individuals interested in participating as panelists should submit a self-nomination email by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 21, 2022, to [email protected].
