Power Transmission Projects See Increased Spending and Growth in Coming Years, a "Navigating the Currents of Change" Webcast on Industrialinfo.com

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2012) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- As states continue implementing renewable portfolio standards (RPS), setting targeted percentages of renewable energy generation, construction of wind, solar and other renewable power projects has blossomed across North America. Along with these new generating facilities, which are often located in remote areas with little existing infrastructure, has come the need for power transmission and distribution (T&D) projects to actually make this power available on the grid.

Industrial Info is currently tracking more than $50 billion in transmission projects in North America that are planned to begin construction within the next five years. In this week's "Navigating the Currents of Change" webcast, Brock Ramey, Industrial Info's manager for North American Power Industry Research, discusses some of the issues facing the power transmission sector.
