In LCG’s 2018 ERCOT Outlook


LCG, March 21, 2018 --Texas continues to experience an unprecedented transformation in its energy industry. The state saw record wind energy production in 2017 and will continue to see wind growth through 2018. Large transmission projects and upgrades have taken place. New import and export capabilities are on the horizon, such as through the integration of Lubbock Power & Light and the possible Southern Cross transmission project.

LCG Consulting (LCG) has completed a comprehensive hourly simulation of the ERCOT market for 2018 to help stakeholders tackle uncertainties in future ERCOT operations. The Outlook Report outlines future operation of the ERCOT nodal market, including Locational Marginal Prices (LMPs), load zone prices, hub prices and expected congestion. For more in depth analysis, LCG can provide tailored datasets, such as individualized generator performance, hourly prices, and much more.

LCG performed the simulations using the sophisticated and long-standing electricity model, the UPLAN Network Power Model. LCG has been modeling energy systems for more than 30 years and continuously sustains the most up-to-date information on every detail of the Texas grid including minor and major transmission upgrades as well as generation additions and retirement.
