Future Grid Strategy Advisory Group

Future Grid Strategy Advisory Group

The Future Grid Strategy Advisory Group (FGSAG) oversees periodic assessments of the future state of the SPP grid, identifies gaps between those future state projections and current trajectories, and increases organizational awareness of value-added opportunities to shape the future grid. The FGSAG advises the organization of future-grid capabilities needed to assure continued reliable and affordable grid operations. The FGSAG will provide periodic reports to the SPP Strategic Planning Committee  that contain forward-looking utility perspectives and proposed strategic action plans.
