University of Minnesota Humphrey School releases study surrounding CapX2020

The U of M Humphrey School released a report on April 27, 2016 calling the $2.1 billion dollar CapX2020 transmission line expansion a “win-win”. According to the Humphrey School researchers, the report “Transmission Planning and CapX2020: Building trust to build regional transmission systems,” investigates how CapX2020 representatives developed a shared vision and aligned around a common goal. “Transmission development is a critical, yet notoriously challenging component of decarbonizing the energy system,” said Elizabeth Wilson, professor of energy and environmental policy and law at the Humphrey School and Institute on the Environment fellow. “The coordinated CapX2020 efforts across several states are at the forefront of energy system planning evolution in the United States.”
