New transmission is being planned at a fast and furious rate in order to accommodate growing demand and the need to bring new and different types of generation online. The desire to preserve open space, coupled with NIMBY issues in many urban areas has meant that utilities must consider installing underground transmission, even though the cost of underground transmission (UT) has traditionally been many times the cost of overhead transmission and maintenance and repair has proved costly and difficult. Going underground with transmission is not usually a transmission owner's first choice, but often is necessary in order to get a project sited and built.

This EUCI conference on underground transmission will feature several case studies of underground transmission projects in different types of environments with various types of design, installation techniques, cable and other equipment. For each project, we'll examine the costs along with the pros and cons of siting and installation and any lessons learned. In addition, the conference will highlight new technologies that are making UT more reliable, accessible and affordable, and possibly even greener.

This is the ideal event for utilities considering UT projects or looking for new approaches to existing systems.

Attendees will hear from experienced professionals on the following:

•Reasons for taking transmission underground

•Costs/benefits of underground v. overhead transmission

•Installation techniques

•Planning criteria and siting

•Permitting, stakeholder issues and public involvement

•Regulatory cost recovery issues

•Assessment of available technologies

•Maintenance and repair
