ERCOT reviewing changes to price adder; Panasonic investing in battery factory with Tesla


POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • ERCOT is reviewing several potential changes to a price adder that will ensure there is sufficient generation available. These changes were proposed after the PUC raised concerns that the adder did not reflect a drop in capacity. A consensus is currently being awaited.
  • Panasonic Corp. will invest up to $1.6 billion on an advanced battery factory with electric-car maker Tesla Motors Inc. in order to widen its share in automotive electronics. Currently, Panasonic’s sales to automakers are projected to double in the next four years as vehicles have more electrical devices built into them. In this fiscal year, the company’s sales to auto makers is approximately $11 billion, about 15 percent of the company’s revenue.
