1 Challenges Facing Our Nation s Transmission Grid Susan Tomasky - President AEP Transmission

2 American Electric Power Strength & scale in assets & operations 5.1 million customers in 11 states. Largest Transmission Owner in the US with 2,100 miles 765kV Asset Size Industry Rank Domestic Generation ~38,400 MW #2 Transmission ~39,000 miles #1 Distribution ~208,000 miles #1 Generation Transmission Distribution Customers Environmental Projects Wind IGCC Carbon Capture & Storage I-765 TM Electric Transmission Texas JV Electric Transmission America JV AEP-ABB Alliance Distribution automation Self-healing distribution circuits Advanced metering Communications infrastructure Mobile workforce Internal energy efficiency Integration platform for advanced visualization and analytics Distributed generation and energy storage Customer programs and incentives Energy efficiency Direct load control Peak demand reduction Energy storage Existing generation and transmission control systems gridsmart SM : bridging the gap to provide integrated two-way communications & control across the electricity value chain Home energy automation p.2

3 National Landscape Challenges Increasing focus on renewable sources of energy has highlighted the weakness in the existing system and in the planning processes used to develop new transmission Concerns over the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels will continue to challenge the industry Existing transmission system: aging and in need of upgrades was not built to support competitive regional markets and is not adequate to meet future demand growth and integrate potential renewable generation resources not designed to be adaptive to major changes in the generation supply mix Opportunities Strategic expansion of the transmission grid, including development of a robust national EHV transmission system can better prepare the United States to address these challenges in a timely, cost effective and efficient manner. p.3

4 National Landscape: Resources on Wires Accessing America s Resources Optimal use of renewable and fossil fuels are constrained due to insufficient transmission infrastructure Investment in a EHV transmission system extending coast to coast will enable the US to use its resources when and where it may be needed in the future Remove barriers to access renewables and improve the diversification in our fuel supply Lowers system losses Broader sharing of reserves Adds to energy security, reduces environmental impact and ultimately allows continued growth of the US Economic growth remains closely tied to energy and climate related initiatives, requiring policies which understand these interdependencies. HYDRO WIND & SOLAR Population Center Various Various OIL SAND, NATURAL GAS, WIND, HYDRO WIND NATURAL GAS Various Various NUCLEAR p.4

5 Vision of The Next Interstate: EHV Transmission Conceptual 765-kV overlay for wind integration can save 20 GW of supply. * *AC-DC-C ties optional p.5

6 Vision of the Next Interstate: Benefits of EHV Weak Backbone Robust Backbone Reliance on local, high cost generation Higher reserve requirement Higher system losses Greater need for additional right-ofway True generation diversification (cost, supply, geography) Lower reserve margin Lower system losses Less right-of-way consumption Higher coincident peak loads Lower system efficiency Greater access to large-scale renewables Compliment to smart-grid initiatives Decreases coincident peak loads Higher system efficiency Increased reliability A 765 overlay would provide for connection of up to 400 GW of wind, improve the US supply portfolio, provide for environmental sustainability and cultivate an opportunity for growth p.6

7 300 ft 130 ft 120 ft 150 ft EHV Transmission: Environmentally Sensible Wind Turbine 765 kv Single Circuit 500 kv Single Circuit 345 kv Double Circuit Wind Turbines and Transmission Towers Average Height of Structures p.7

8 AEP is at the forefront of transmission technology. Examples of evolving transmission technology at AEP Independent phase shifting which allows a single 765 kv circuit to be operated as 2 circuits to enhance reliability and avoid loss of load Use of 765 kv voltage level and advanced conductor configurations that significantly reduce Line losses losses at 345 kv are 6+%, while 765 kv losses are less than 1% - lower line losses means less generation is needed. Use of embedded advanced telecommunications technology (Smart technology) that allows real time monitoring and management of the transmission grid and can be used to proactively identify potential faults. p.8

9 Barriers To Transmission Development The Three Horsemen Planning: How do we plan expansion of the grid in a coordinated way, with the kind of vision that led President Eisenhower to propose our interstate highway? Siting: How do we site needed transmission on an expedited basis to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is developed to support inevitable changes to our supply portfolio? Cost Allocation: How do we keep the 300 pond elephant who pays for this???? from derailing necessary infrastructure development? We need a true nationwide transmission version of our interstate highway system; a grid of extra-high voltage backbone transmission lines reaching out to remote resources and overlaying, reinforcing, and tying together the existing grid in each interconnection to an extent never before seen. Suedeen Kelly-Commissioner FERC July 23, 2007 ERO /008 (FERC s denial of rehearing on MISO s current cost allocation method.) p.9

10 gridsmart: gridsmart: Distribution The Distribution System System of the of the Future Future Karen Sloneker, Director Karen Sloneker - Director Customer Services & Marketing

11 gridsmart: What is it? New initiatives that will transform: customer service, reliability, energy efficiency, and overall environmental performance Expand opportunities for customers to make important choices regarding their energy consumption and supply p.11

12 Why gridsmart? Rising energy prices Technology affordability and accessibility Environmental action Infrastructure improvement needs Rising expectations p.12

13 How will gridsmart work? A Comprehensive, Integrated Suite of Technologies Utility Interface to Customers Integrated 2-Way Communication Consumer Managed Energy Technology Distributed Automation and Reliability Technology Innovative Dispatching Technology Cybersecurity p.13

14 Where will gridsmart project site be located? 110,000 customers in Northeast Central Ohio Portions of Bexley, New Albany, Whitehall, Gahanna, Reynolsburg, Westerville and Blacklick Area chosen for its demographic and economic strata, consumption, patterns and distribution infrastructure p.14

15 gridsmart p.15

16 Environmental Benefits People are becoming increasingly aware of greenhouse gas emissions and are concerned about sustainable action to address global climate change. gridsmart options can help electricity consumers be more environmentally responsible by: Helping customers find ways to reduce overall energy use through energy efficiency and demand response options and Helping Customers Adjust their peak demand (or peak load maximum amount of energy used at any one time) so that AEP can make more efficient use of its existing facilities. When electricity providers improve efficiency, they potentially can delay the need to build new or replacement facilities. More efficient operations also can mean reduced fuel consumption, which translates directly into lower emissions and a cleaner world. p.16
