STEP-FAR Seminar on Transmission Planning and CapX2020

Join us for an afternoon seminar with Marta Monti, lead research associate on the Humphrey School report, "Transmission Planning and CapX2020: Building trust to build regional transmission systems."

The report is the product of research led by STEP Professor and Institute on the Environment Fellow, Elizabeth Wilson, and tells the story of CapX2020, a coalition of eleven utilities from Minnesota and the Upper Midwest that worked together to plan, develop and build the region’s first major energy line expansion in 40 years.

Monti is a third-year MPP-STEP (Masters of Public Policy and Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy Concentrator) and CIL (Center for Integrative Leadership) student at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. She will discuss the team's research and offer her reflections on the project.
