In a new report, electricity experts from Brattle and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP recommend that, in the absence of action by the regional grid operators, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) should remedy the well-documented inefficient uses of interregional transmission capabilities between energy markets.

The report, The Need for Intertie Optimization: Reducing Customer Costs, Improving Grid Resilience, and Encourage Interregional Transmission, was coauthored by Brattle Principal Johannes Pfeifenberger, Manager Joe DeLosa III, and Research Analyst John Gonzalez with former FERC Commissioner Norman C. Bay and Vivian W. Chum of Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. It was prepared for ACORE, Advanced Power Alliance, Grid United, Invenergy, MAREC Action, and NRDC.
