New and innovative initiatives are under way across AEP in response to emerging business opportunities. These initiatives improve system reliability and performance, result in fewer environmental impacts, lower the cost to deliver electricity to customers and reduce by half construction time of new facilities. Nowhere is the use of innovation and technology more evident than in our transmission business unit.

“In order to differentiate ourselves in the market, we must be able to monitor and gain experience in emerging technologies and be ready to embrace them quickly.” - AEP Stakeholder
