The Electricity Journal, 2009, vol. 22, issue 10, 7-19

Abstract: It has been almost 10 years since FERC Order 2000 created regional transmission organizations and independent system operators in order to establish competitive power markets and to stimulate the development of new transmission. Now, the dominant behavior of the incumbent transmission owners, expressed through their RTO and ISO transmission expansion planning processes, is at loggerheads with public policies aimed at developing renewable energy resources.
