PJM, MISO to Collaborate on Informational Interregional Transfer Capability Study

The PJM Interconnection and the Midcontinent Independent System Operator on May 9 announced that the organizations will collaborate on an informational interregional transfer capability study, set to be performed during the second half of 2024.

Increasing transfer capability between regions may help to support greater grid resilience, particularly following extreme weather events and the influx of renewable generation resources with intermittent output.

Driven by input received by each organization from the Organization of PJM States, the Organization of MISO States and the Midwestern Governors Association, the study will identify potential opportunities for near-term transmission enhancements along the seam shared by PJM and MISO.

PJM and MISO will work together to explore opportunities to engage in joint transmission analysis and coordinated modeling and leverage planning processes to promote reliability and resiliency through holistic, efficient and cost-effective transmission planning for ratepayers.

After the study’s conclusion in early 2025, both grid operators will share their findings with the Interregional Planning Stakeholder Advisory Committee, an organization established by PJM and MISO to review coordinated system planning activities with all stakeholder groups.
