A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • According to a new report published by Navigant Research, global demand response capacity is expected to grow to 144 GW in 2025. Current demand response capacity is nearly 39 GW. The U.S. is expected to lead the adoption of demand response programs. Several factors (ex. low natural gas prices and coal/nuclear retirements) will affect the growth path of demand response programs. Regulators and other market officials are requesting tighter requirements to ensure reliable operations and efficient markets as demand response programs become a larger part of the response base.
  • The Texas Workforce Commission states that there have been 171,800 jobs added over the past year with jobs added in 13 out of the past 14 months. The state’s unemployment rate has remained unchanged at 4.4 percent in May, below the national average of 4.7 percent.
