Event Description

An abundance of renewable energy has been instrumental in driving Texas energy prices down, making it less economical to keep coal and nuclear plants open. In addition, retirement of coal generation is planned before this summer; and new solar and wind resources will be added to the grid. The effect this combination will have on the state’s power sector is yielding questions for regulators and market participants. Concerns include how generators will be impacted by low energy prices and what, if anything, regulators will do as well as how interconnection of distributed generation is harmonized with protection against surges and frequency issues.

While concerns related to older plant maintenance increase, the promise of greater reliability associated with more distributed generation, energy storage, and micro-grids make this a timely discussion.
