Christensen Associates Energy Consulting, LLC produced a report in June, 2014 for the Electric Markets Research Foundation entitled “Ensuring Adequate Power Supplies For Tomorrow’s Electricity Needs”. With increasing visibility around the issues of U.S. electric system reliability and resource adequacy, this report examines key elements influencing our electric generation system. You may click here for the full report.
Join us as Mr. Edelston and Dr. Morey overview the report, discussing risks and challenges posed by:
• A lack of fuel diversity in new electric generation development
• Planned retirement of coal plants
• Gas-electric coordination
• Electricity markets structures
They will also address the further implications of EPA’s proposed GHG regulations for existing power plants issued subsequent to the completion of this report.
