POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court temporarily granted a stay request from a group of more than two dozen states, utilities and coal companies to stop implementation of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan until legal challenges to the rule are resolved. The Clean Power Plan would require every state to submit a plan on how they would reduce CO2 emissions from their electricity sectors by a set amount and would take effect by 2022 at the latest. A link to Luminant’s statement on the EPA Clean Power Plan proposal can be found here.
  • ERCOT released its 2015 State of the Grid Report. ERCOT President and CEO Bill Magness says “From setting a new all-time peak demand record to the integration of record amounts of renewable wind generation resources into our system, ERCOT continues to evolve to meet the demands of the region.” The report also summarizes the changes to the ERCOT leadership team and provides updates to ERCOT’s initiatives and milestones.
