Join Stoel Rives Jason Johns
in Minneapolis for the HVDC Transmission conference
, presented by EUCI. This conference will explore using high-voltage, direct current transmission as a benefit for renewable energy projects and as the preferred method to create grid stability among interconnection regions. As the country begins to tackle aging and jammed transmission infrastructure, high-voltage, direct current transmission is a widely accepted alternative to the commonly used AC systems. And, with a growing effort to deliver more renewable energy from remote sites to population centers, HVDC is becoming a favored method of transmission of renewable energy, especially wind. Furthermore, the cost of developing an HVDC line continues to fall, making the choice to replace existing AC lines with HVDC technology more appealing.
Presenters will discuss the current status of several projects and provide insight into preferred methods of designing an HVDC transmission project. Panel discussions will focus on regulatory viewpoints for HVDC and drivers for the resurgence of HVDC.
Stoel Rives Attorney, Jason Johns, will present FERC Rulemaking Impact on Independent Transmission Projects from 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.on Tuesday, April 19, 2011.
