Competitive procurements of regional transmission systems, according to FERC Order 1000, address grid reliability, market efficiency, or public policy directives.

There is more to market intelligence than simply knowing what’s happening. And while being aware of the latest legislation, regulation, policy, or trend is paramount to building effective business strategies, understanding what these developments mean can be the difference between leading, following, or being left behind.
Working closely with your business, Quanta Technology’s Energy Market Intelligence Services (EMIS) can monitor regional markets and follow regional policy developments to gather market intelligence and interpret this intelligence to identify potential threats to and opportunities for your business. Our SMEs focus on developments in transmission, distribution, asset management, and operations in regulatory bodies such as FERC, NERC, and State agencies, as well as professional engineering societies such as IEEE and CIGRE – including major developers and utilities – to interpret new developments and report creative solutions that could affect your business.
Our SMEs will also engage with your executive strategy team on a weekly basis, challenging current thinking in light of new intelligence. This can lead to improved short- and long-term strategies, as well as being prepared for new business opportunities.

Our SMEs organize their monthly data into tables that include Key Intelligence Topics, Item of Interest, Discussions, and Key Takeaways that are relevant to your business. These tables often include hyperlinks to relevant source information and actions for further investigation.

In addition to the Key Intelligence items, a list of Other Developments is included to keep you informed of other issues that may develop into key issues in future.
