Statement on Interregional Transfer Capability Study

​NERC pledges to move forward on passage of the interregional transfer capability study directed in the debt ceiling legislation. We have consistently stressed the need for more transmission to support the energy transformation, grid reliability, and resilience, and this independent study could provide important insights for industry, regulators, and policymakers. NERC is currently scoping the requirements for the study and will work in collaboration with FERC, the Regional Entities, and industry to address Congress’ directive.

“We appreciate Congress placing trust in us to be objective and comprehensive in our assessment of the transmission system and any opportunities to improve its resilience, reliability, and ability to support the energy transition,” said Jim Robb, NERC president and chief executive officer.
