Eastern Interconnection Planning Collaborative (EIPC) Technical Support

Synapse provided technical support to the NGO sector involved in the U.S. DOE-funded planning collaborative for new transmission in the eastern electrical grid interconnection of the U.S. and Canada. Synapse assessed modeling inputs, future scenarios, modeling mechanisms, and transmission build-out alternatives for the purpose of gauging the economic effects of future resource expansion scenarios, particularly those that can help lower the carbon intensity of the U.S. power sector.
