FERC Order 1000: Where Are We Now?

May 15, 2018 :: Washington, DC

Overview
FERC Order 1000 took effect in 2011 with the intent to encourage the development of new transmission in order to bring new sources of energy on-line and foster a more robust market place.  FERC Order 1000 is a Final Rule that reforms FERC's electric transmission planning and cost allocation requirements for public utility transmission providers. The rule builds on the reforms of Order No. 890 and was designed to correct deficiencies with respect to transmission planning processes and cost allocation methods.
 
One of the more contentious requirements of Order 1000 was the removal of the long-standing federal Right Of First Refusal (ROFR) for some transmission projects and the requirement for ISOs/RTOs to institute a competitive bidding process. Removing ROFR as an option has the potential to significantly change the way large transmission projects are identified and awarded in many parts of the country as transmission lines meeting certain criteria will be awarded and built under a competitive bid process.
 
It's now 2018 and many in the industry are still looking for the changes that FERC Order 1000 promised.  This conference will feature experts involved with implementing the FERC Order 1000 along with transmission developers who are trying to find new opportunities associated with the planning and bidding guidelines.  Conference speakers will discuss if, and how, the stipulations of FERC Order 1000 are changing the way transmission is planned, bid and built.
