For several clients, Brattle consultants have analyzed the benefits of transmission investments to facilitate the development of remotely located renewable resources. The results of one of these studies, “Transmission Super Highway: Benefits of Extra High Voltage Transmission Overlays in the Midwest,” have been cited as some of the most significant evidence to date that renewable resources offer an economically-feasible response to escalating energy demands in a carbon-regulated environment. This report has been presented to the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources to support the need for new transmission development to enable states to meet their renewable portfolio standards (RPS).
