Reshaping the Western Grid: Compliance with FERC Order No. 1000 in the West

Transmission Hub and WIRES Western Grid Webcast Series

Husch Blackwell Senior Counsel, WIRES advisor and former FERC Chairman Jim Hoecker moderates Part 1 of a four-part series on Reshaping the Western Grid. The panel examines FERC’s desire to reassess how the Western transmission grid is planned, seeking to optimize electricity commerce across all regions and sub regions. Other topics include whether the current progress toward compliance with FERC’s Order No. 1000 is sufficient and what is and isn’t working; how new procedures are evolving among the four Western regions; and what coordination models are under consideration.
