Picture Energy: WIRES Winter Meeting, February 15

Fortnightly Magazine - March 2018

Held at the Canadian Embassy, the aptly-named association for transmission development headed by former FERC Chair Jim Hoecker, WIRES, put on a show on spurring grid buildout. Among the speakers were Nina Plaushin of ITC, Tom Kuhn and Lawrence Jones of EEI, Sergio Marchi of the Canadian Electricity Association, and Clair Moeller of MISO.

Several speakers voiced strong support for the energy provisions (Chapter Six) of the North American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA, currently being negotiated by the U.S., Canada and Mexico. To modernize it, but certainly to maintain the Chapter.
