POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • ERCOT released its Seasonal Assessment of Resource Adequacy (SARA) for this fall as well as its preliminary outlook for winter which states that there should be sufficient generation to meet the electricity demands for the region this upcoming fall and winter. The fall report forecasts a peak demand of about 54,400 MW and more than 82,000 MW of total generation capacity. The initial winter SARA forecasts sufficient generation with approximately 59,000 MW of peak demand expected.
  • The House and Senate committee will meet this week to draft an energy compromise bill to reform the federal energy policy. Led by Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Maria Cantwell (D-Washington), the committee wants to include provisions to expand exports of liquefied natural gas, renew a conservation fund, expand energy efficiency programs and improve the grid’s security.
