On Friday, October 21 at 10:00 a.m., ISO New England (ISO-NE) will host a virtual briefing to present its recently released 2021 Economic Study: Future Grid Reliability Study. The study evaluates how a 2040 grid could perform with a shift to largely renewable resources and a large increase in demand associated with electrification of the heating and transportation sectors. The study investigates several potential scenarios for a future grid that were developed by stakeholders. The resulting analysis produced takeaways in several areas that may help inform decision-making as the region continues to move towards a transformed grid. The final report is available on the ISO-NE website and a short summary is available on the ISO’s Newswire.
The October 21 briefing will highlight the findings of the study, including the operational and reliability challenges that were identified and will need to be addressed in the future grid, and possible ways to meet those needs. The briefing, held via WebEx, is free and open to the general public. Registration is required to obtain the information needed to join the webinar.
