Europe and Eurasia: Black Sea Initiative

Study Tour on Transmission Planning

Date: October 2010
Location: Carmel, Indiana

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, NARUC implemented a study tour for Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Turkey to provide insight into the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) and regulatory commissions in the US Midwest. The complex set of meetings built understanding for Black Sea regulators into regional consensus-building on issues related to MISO market operations, transmission cost allocation and system reliability.
