POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • ERCOT released their updated 10-year Capacity, Demand and Reserves report which shows that the reserve margin of electricity will exceed 20 percent by 2017. These findings help to ease concerns that the state will have sufficient electricity to meet the state’s growing demand. ERCOT revised and updated their forecasting model methodology after an agency review; ERCOT officials now say that they are better able to report on future power demand.
  • Former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates and a group of 27 investors from 10 countries are coming together to form the Breakthrough Energy Coalition.  The Coalition will focus on early stage companies that seek to provide a clean energy future while providing the world with affordable, reliable energy. This news was announced at this week’s Paris Summit on climate change.
