Transmission And Wholesale Markets Virtual School
Wednesday, August 19, 2020 - Thursday, August 20, 2020
Edison Electric Institute
701 Pennsylvania Ave, NW Washington, DC 20004-2696 UNITED STATES
  • Registration is now closed for the 2020 Virtual Transmission & Wholesale Markets School.  

    If you would like to be added to the 2021 TWMS waiting list, please send an email to jmastin@eei.org

  • Please join us on August 19 and 20 for an abbreviated version of the Transmission Wholesale and Markets School sponsored by EEI in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin.  For two intensive afternoons, you will receive instruction from academic experts from the University of Wisconsin and industry experts who will discuss the current thinking on transmission planning and economics, wholesale energy market design, emerging energy issues, and more.  Attendees will develop a deeper understanding of the history and development of the transmission system and energy markets, as well as the potential impacts of the evolving energy mix and changing public policy goals going forward.  Additionally, a certificate of completion will be provided, and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available. 

    While normally held over five full days on the University of Wisconsin campus, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, an abbreviated version of the program will be held virtually this year from 1:30 pm – 5 pm EDT on August 19 & 20.  We hope to return to our usual format next year. Please note that while this will be a virtual meeting, the number of registration slots will remain limited in order to foster more effective conversation and interaction.

  • Whether you are new to the electric power industry or a seasoned veteran wishing to brush up on emerging policy issues, this course provides high level introductions as well as in-depth analysis of wholesale and market operations and policy. Past attendees of this course have included attorneys, engineers, industry analysts, state & federal governmental and regulatory affairs representatives, state public service commissioners and staff, economists, operations managers, compliance specialists and state & federal governmental agency staff.

    Our world-class speakers offer timely insight valuable to any participant, regardless of employer or occupation: over 90% of student survey respondents in 2019 agreed that the material met or exceeded their expectations, and that they would recommend TWMS to a friend or colleague.
