Mapping Tool Assists Long-Term Transmission Planning

A new mapping tool, called the EISPC EZ Mapping Tool, is assisting planners, policymakers, project developers and others in identifying clean energy resources, policies, and project screening factors that can be used for planning transmission infrastructure in the Eastern Interconnect.  The tool was developed through a partnership of three national labs including Argonne, Oak Ridge and the National Renewable Energy Lab and in coordination with Eastern Interconnection States' Planning Council (EISPC).

The tool can help users identify potential areas for developing clean energy resources and associated transmission infrastructure. 

The user-friendly interface allows users to run models, tailor analysis areas, run reports and export results and maps.
