MISO will conduct a more thorough study of transmission capacity needs in the Upper Midwest in response to utilities behind the independent CapX2050 planning study.
The Midwest requires a more comprehensive approach to transmission planning to meet the region’s varied goals, experts said during a Mid-Grid meetup.
The Upper Midwest needs more transmission, more technology and preservation of dispatchable generation for reliability, the CapX2050 study concluded.
MISO renewable proponents want to revamp a transmission planning process they say inhibits the development of generation in the western region.
The team behind CapX2020 say the CapX2050 Transmission Vision study will look beyond transmission for possible solutions.
