The Transmission White Paper considers the complex regulatory ecosystem that governs both offshore wind transmission planning and the broader planning of the electricity grid. The White Paper identifies six recommendations that should be considered by grid operators and policymakers as they plan how best to resolve the “chicken and egg” challenge of generation versus transmission development. Each is critical to resolving the transmission challenges the U.S. faces, and includes transmission planning that weighs all benefits, incorporates public policy requirements, is proactive, plans for post-2035 offshore wind needs, quantifies benefits, and more thoroughly synchronizes inter-regional planning.
