    Background and Purpose

    The purpose of this session is to provide stakeholders with an introduction to the assumptions and methodologies used in the development of the AESO’s transmission capability mapping tool as well as its vision and intended use. This will include a walk-through of the map, a facilitated Q&A to respond to stakeholder questions and clarifications, and details around supporting user experience. The second part of the session will provide stakeholders with an introduction to transmission utilization, including the fundamentals of transmission planning for contingencies, and a preliminary discussion on appropriate utilization metrics to use for transmission utilization.
