ESG/Ethical Impact

The power industry is undergoing its most complex transition in history. Throughout 2021, we seemed to be in a constant state of transition — change brought on by the dynamic and evolving energy landscape. This evolution included many of our members transitioning from the use of coal and gas to the integration of more renewable resources like solar and wind. We also experienced more extreme weather events, such as the unprecedented Winter Storm Uri in February that affected the South. The storm and its aftermath challenged us, our members and our neighbors in many ways. We learned several lessons from this event that underscore the importance of MISO’s reliability mission. These lessons fed into MISO’s Long-Range Transmission Planning process that resulted in the MISO Board of Directors approving a historic $10.3 billion portfolio of transmission projects. LRTP presents projects that build up infrastructure that will allow members to integrate their renewable energy plans into the changing grid, thus helping them meet decarbonization goals. The projects have the potential to make a 439-million-ton reduction in CO emissions over 20 years and disburse nearly 70 GW of renewables by 2039. MISO’s Long-Range Transmission Plan, along with market redefinition, market system enhancement and operations of the future, are the four pillars of MISO’s Reliability Imperative — the shared responsibility utilities, states and MISO have to address fleet change, extreme weather and other challenges facing the MISO region. The work being done in these four areas is critical to ensure we keep the power flowing to communities across our region reliably and cost-effectively today and into the future. As we reflect on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lessons learned will help to shape MISO and its workforce. In 2021, we redefined our work model and held MISO Board of Directors’ and stakeholders’ meetings virtually. No matter the circumstances, we have demonstrated that collaboration and commitment are vital to our success. My thanks to MISO employees, the Board and stakeholders for their flexibility and support.
