PES Day Webinar: The Impact of the CLEAN Futures Act and FERC 2222 on T&D Engineering


IEEE PES Region 2 welcomes you to join this PES Day webinar provided by Mr. Doug Houseman, a Principal Consultant at Burns & McDonnell. 1 PDH will be provided to attendees who will be tracked and proven to be in attendance for this entire webinar.

Abstract: The CLEAN Futures Act (CFA) and FERC 2222 are two of the newest Federalization moves on Transmission and Distribution, while FERC 2222 is reality, the CFA is just a bill in committee in the House of Representatives. FERC 2222 meekly requires that aggregation be allowed for renewables on the distribution grid for use in the wholesale market, combined with FERC-841/2/5 it gives FERC deep reach into the distribution grid. The CFA, if passed would make wholesale changes to what utilities can do and not do with their own distribution grids, and makes large changes to Transmission planning. There are good things, bad things, and a couple of "HAH?" things in this bill that everyone should know about.
