PJM And MISO Embark on Joint Planning Endeavor To Enhance Reliability

May 13, 2024
The study will identify potential opportunities for near-term transmission enhancements along the seam shared by PJM and MISO.

PJM Interconnection and the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) will collaborate on an informational interregional transfer capability study to be performed during the second half of 2024.

Increasing transfer capability between regions is predicted to support greater grid resilience, especially after extreme weather events and the influx of renewable generation resources with intermittent output. The study will identify potential opportunities for near-term transmission enhancements along the seam shared by PJM and MISO.

The study received inputs by each organization from the Organization of PJM States (OPSI), the Organization of MISO States (OMS) and the Midwestern Governors Association (MGA).

PJM and MISO will explore opportunities to:

· Engage in joint transmission analysis and coordinated modeling

· Leverage planning processes to promote reliability and resiliency through holistic, efficient and cost-effective transmission planning for ratepayers

"Ensuring a reliable energy transition requires greater interdependence among regions and careful planning,” said Paul McGlynn, PJM Vice President – Planning. “Advancing this enhanced effort will benefit electricity consumers in each region."

The grid operators will share their findings with the Interregional Planning Stakeholder Advisory Committee, an organization established by PJM and MISO to review coordinated system planning activities with all stakeholder groups, after completing the study in early 2025
