CSG to Host Session on Transmission Line Siting at Annual Meeting

In conjunction with CSG's ongoing efforts to create an electric transmission line siting compact, next week's National Conference and North American Summit will feature a session entitled "If You Build It, Will They Come." The session will focus on the increasing demand for energy, especially electricity generated from renewable resources.  It will also address growing demand and the importance of moving energy across state lines and international borders.  Panelists will discuss effective tools used in Mexico, Canada and the United States, as well as suggest ways for the three nations to work cooperatively to move power more efficiently and effectively from where it is generated to where it is needed.

During the session attendees will hear from Rep. Jeff Morris (WA), Dr. Duncan Wodd from the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo de Mexico (ITAM) in Mexico City, and Dr. David Cormie from Manitoba Hydro.  The session will also provide plenty of time for dialgue between policymakers and panalists.
