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.

Project completed in 2013.
