On July 16-17, 2013, TransmissionHub hosted the 1st Annual TransForum West conference in San Diego, California. The conference covered many of today’s most important issues and served as a great networking opportunity for attendees. This year we had 28 speaker/panelists representing a wide spectrum of interests in the transmission industry. Links to some of the presentation papers are listed below. We look forward to putting together another timely and informative agenda next year.
