PLANNING THE ENERGY TRANSITION: GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES - The energy transition requires an unprecedented build-out of renewable energy and electrical transmission projects. The grid of the future will need to be bigger, smarter, and better connected, requiring the transformation of a transmission system built for bulk electricity from large fossil-based generators to one that can accommodate the decentralized nature of renewable energy systems. While many countries do transmission planning, their access to data, authority to implement the plans, and planning integration across regions vary and can significantly decrease their efficacy.

During this panel discussion, hosted by the Global Energy Center, experts will evaluate and compare the transmission planning strategies of grid operators in the US, EU, Australia, and Canada and identify solutions to improve how countries both make and execute plans for transmission infrastructure.
