DOE's 2002 National Transmission Grid Study recommended that DOE undertake designation of national interest transmission bottlenecks (NITB). This project supported DOE in that process by assessing and addressing gaps in current methods, approaches, and data needed to make these designations. This project initiated research needed to address the limitations of available approaches toward improving future designations by DOE.
