Judy W. Chang, Johannes P. Pfeifenberger, J. Michael Hagerty

A new study commissioned by WIRES and authored by economists at The Brattle Group finds that new high-voltage transmission investments offer numerous potential benefits that have too often been disregarded as remote, intangible, or hard to estimate. The report urges planners and policy maker s to consider the full range of potential economic, reliability, environmental, and public policy benefits of new and upgraded transmission when evaluating which projects will serve customers and the economy best. For the first time, transmission planners and policy makers now have a catalogue of benefits and techniques for evaluation that they can employ in devising optimal regional development plans.
