EUCI 8th Annual Public Participation for Transmission Siting - Houston, Texas

New transmission is needed to accommodate growing load and new generation sources. The process for getting new transmission sited and built is costly and often controversial among the public. A key tenet of transmission siting is a comprehensive public outreach process. By communicating with all stakeholders and the public early and often, transmission owners can balance the need for system improvements with landowner priorities, environmental considerations, and political pressure.

Attendees at this EUCI conference will learn how transmission developers are able to obtain meaningful input and which approaches are used in order to effectively reach their public. Communication strategies on how to effectively communicate with different kinds of customers and improve relationships with the public will be addressed. Subject matter experts will present the importance of early engagement communication approaches for each type of audience, addressing opposition, and how to prepare for public involvement. Case specific examples of the communications process and their results - both positive and negative - will be given by industry peers.
