The 2018 Regional Transmission Expansion Plan (RTEP) report includes a summary of reliability, market efficiency and operational performance studies. This year’s report also includes discussion of RTEP process enhancements that were completed or initiated in 2018, as well as trends in generation fleet changes driven by plant deactivation and new natural gas plant interconnection.
The report describes the annual RTEP process, including the NERC and regional planning criteria that drive the analysis, and the resulting studies and proposal windows. Specific results from studies conducted throughout 2018 are summarized, including baseline reliability, market efficiency, operational performance, transmission owner criteria analyses and interregional studies.
In addition to the presentation of PJM-wide results, PJM presents state-by-state summaries of planning activities that occurred in 2018.
