In its seventh annual "Transmission Projects: At A Glance" report, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) says that total U.S. transmission investment by EEI members reached $11.1 billion in 2011 and is expected to increase to about $15.1 billion in 2013.

The report highlights over 150 transmission projects by EEI members, totaling approximately $51.1 billion in investments through 2023. EEI notes that these projects may serve more than one purpose and fall into overlapping categories. Accordingly, of the total $51.1 billion to be invested, $38.7 billion (76%) will be spent on projects supporting the integration of renewable energy resources; $26.5 billion (52%) will be invested in interstate transmission projects; and $29.1 billion (57%) will go to projects on which EEI members collaborate with other utilities and non-members.
