Dear ACEG Coalition partner,
As you may remember, ACEG’s advocacy at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) relative to resilience has centered on the theme that improved transmission capacity would not only be the most effective way of bolstering short-term system response to contingencies, but would be wholly within FERC’s fundamental authority, unlike measures aimed at supporting baseload generation or fuel supply. We made this argument in our comments, in our visits, and in our side-bar conversations when Chairman Chatterjee addressed our strategy lunch meeting at the beginning of February. 

So you can imagine how pleased we were when Chairman Chatterjee used his keynote opportunity at the CERAWeek conference in Houston to adopt our line of thinking and promise action on it, as you can read in the Utility Dive story "Chatterjee: Transmission could be resilience docket solution." There are times when one can feel one’s best arguments simply don’t seem to penetrate the thinking of top policy makers. Then there are other times like this one. Now ACEG must work to assist the Chairman and other members of FERC to identify the vehicles and policies that can convert his recognition of the critical role of transmission into real investments in an expanded, modernized and integrated high-voltage grid. We welcome your input and help as we take our campaign to the next level.
With all best wishes,
