FERC Order 1000:Where are we now? :: May 15, 2018 :: Washington, DC
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. 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.
