SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. Statutory Framework Section 1221(a) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–58) (EPAct) added a new section 216 to the Federal Power Act (16 U.S.C. 824p) (FPA). New FPA section 216(a) requires the Secretary of Energy (Secretary) 1 to conduct a nationwide study of electric transmission congestion 2 within one year from the date of enactment of EPAct and every three years thereafter. FPA section 216(a)(2) provides ‘‘interested parties’’ with an opportunity to offer ‘‘alternatives and recommendations.’’ 16 U.S.C. 824p(a)(2). Following consideration of such alternatives and recommendations, the Secretary is required to issue a report on the study ‘‘which may designate any geographic area experiencing electric energy transmission capacity constraints or congestion that adversely affects consumers as a national interest electric transmission corridor.’’ FPA section 216(a)(2), 16 U.S.C. 824p(a)(2). FPA section 216(a)(4) states that in determining whether to designate a national interest electric transmission corridor (National Corridor), the Secretary may consider whether: (A) the economic vitality and development of the corridor, or the end markets served by the corridor, may be constrained by lack of adequate or reasonably priced electricity; 1 This report uses the terms ‘‘Secretary,’’ ‘‘Department,’’ and ‘‘DOE’’ interchangeably. 2 Electric transmission congestion (congestion) is the condition that occurs when transmission capacity is not sufficient to enable safe delivery of all scheduled or desired wholesale electricity transfers simultaneously. Congestion results from a transmission capacity constraint (constraint). E:\FR\FM\05OCN1.SGM 05OCN1
