Competitive transmission under FERC Order 1000 is changing the way transmission is being planned and owned in the United States. Join the president of WIRES, a nonprofit association of electric utilities, to discuss the industry. FERC 1000 makes reference to "non-transmission" alternatives; WIRES labels them "market resource alternatives" (MRAs). Understand how MRAs are both supply-side and demand-side solutions and include distributed energy resources, energy efficiency and demand response, utility-scale generation and storage, and how a robust new or upgraded transmission grid benefits them all.
