Two state's decisions on nuclear energy; Advice to utilities on electric vehicles


POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • The Washington Post takes a look at how California and New York are approaching whether or not to include nuclear power in their respective energy mix. This follows New York’s decision to approve a Clean Energy Standard that (among other items) retains the state’s six nuclear reactors which currently provide 30 percent of the state’s electricity. The article contrasts this to that of California’s decision to eliminate nuclear from the state’s portfolio.
  • By 2040, electric vehicles will account for 35 percent of new car sales around the world. Energy Central offers five insights that could assist the utility market as it prepares for this consumer shift including: consider offering incentives to consumers in this space to drive adoption; prepare for demand response and variable rate structure changes; consider partnerships with car manufacturers; adjust utility infrastructure to support EVs on the road; and offer real-time information on electricity prices to inform the consumer.
