Take notice that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) staff will convene a workshop to discuss certain performance-based ratemaking approaches, particularly shared savings, that may foster deployment of transmission technologies. Commissioners may attend and participate in the workshop.
Transmission technologies, as deployed in certain circumstances, may enhance reliability, efficiency, and capacity, and improve the operation of new or existing transmission facilities. The workshop will discuss issues related to shared savings approaches 
for transmission technologies seeking incentives under Federal Power Act section 219.
The workshop will focus on how to calculate ex ante and ex post benefit analyses for transmission technologies seeking incentives. Specifically, the workshop will explore the maturity of the modeling approaches for various transmission technologies; the data needed to study the benefits/costs of such technologies; issues pertaining to access to or confidentiality of this data; the time horizons that should be considered for such studies; and other issues related to verifying forecasted benefits. The workshop may also discuss other issues, including whether and how to account for circumstances in which benefits do not materialize as anticipated. The workshop may also explore other performance-based ratemaking approaches for transmission technologies seeking incentives under Federal Power Act section 219, particularly market-based incentives.
The workshop will be held on September 10, 2021, from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. At this time, the workshop is expected to be held remotely. A supplemental notice will be issued prior to the workshop with further details regarding the agenda and organization, as well as the details for accessing the workshop.
