Electricity Transmission in the US Report

The electricity transmission sector in the US is set for very significant growth. The federal government has announced ambitious targets of achieving 100 per cent carbon-free electricity by 2035 and 30 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030. Expansion and modernisation of the nation's aging and integration of the regionally siloed electric transmission system will be critical to accommodate increasing levels of renewable energy. The federal government’s recent legislation and funding support to modernise electricity grids, reduce congestion, and fast-track permitting will help create the needed grid infrastructure. Utilities are also gearing up to meet the clean energy challenge by formulating plans to improve the system resilience, security, and hardening to withstand adverse weather.

The Electricity Transmission in the US Report released in June 2022 analyses the historical network growth and future network development and investment plans. It provides an overview of the industry structure and discusses the policy and regulatory developments impacting grid investments, including offshore wind energy. The report profiles the leading transmission players, compares their financial performance and discusses their growth plans. It also includes a detailed and up-to-date database of upcoming transmission projects in the US.

The report has five distinct sections.

Part 1 is the executive summary.

Part 2 analyses the performance of the US’ electric transmission industry over the five years (2017–21) and presents investment forecasts and expected network growth for 2022–26. It assesses the key policy and regulatory developments and trends shaping the sector. It covers the following topics:

  • Industry structure and key players
  • Sector size and growth
  • Policy and regulatory developments
  • Network growth and investment outlook
  • Focus on offshore wind transmission

Part 3 provides the detailed profiles of the top 30 transmission players and compares their network growth and financial performance. Each TSO profile includes:

  • Size and growth in the transmission network, 2017–21                              
  • Key operational indicators, 2017–21
  • Key financial indicators, 2017–21
  • Future plans and investment, 2022–26
  • Key planned projects
  • Recent contracts
  • Key contacts

Part 4 consists of a database of key upcoming transmission projects (~160 projects). This section also analyses the project database in terms of voltage level, technology, type and status. For each project, the following information is provided:

  • Description
  • Developer(s)
  • Route
  • Rated voltage (kV)
  • Technology (AC or DC)
  • Type of project (new build, upgrade, expansion, extension)
  • Line length (km)
  • Substation capacity (MVA)
  • Estimated cost
  • Current status (announced/under development/under contractor selection/under construction)
  • Key contractors
  • Scheduled completion
  • Contact details       

Part 5 comprises the appendix. It includes a note on sources and methodology and list of abbreviations.

This report and database are indispensable for any organisation interested in the US’ transmission industry — utilities, system operators, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, EPC contractors, service and technology providers, investors/lenders, research organisations, industry consultants, regulatory agencies, development institutions, etc.

The report is available in PDF format and database in Excel.
