Wrap Up | Presentation Slides
On Tuesday, April 10, ISO New England hosted nearly 30 CPES members at its backup control center in Windsor for a morning of “ISO-NE 101”.
Subject matter experts from system and transmission planning discussed how ISO plans for the future power grid, ensuring that the regional transmission system can reliably deliver power to consumers under a wide range of future system conditions.
Next, external affairs representatives provided an overview of how state energy policies are driving changes regionally. Finally, a member from ISO’s operations team gave a tour of the control room and discussed how ISO’s operators ensure that the grid runs reliably 365 days a year.
