ERCOT 2018 Summer Quarter Outlook


LCG, July 16, 2018-- LCG released a new third quarter (July – August 2018) report that looks at how the ERCOT grid can cope with strained network conditions. Resource adequacy analysis for the region is especially important during extreme summer loading conditions. This summer the network is under particular scrutiny as the reserves have tightened because of recent retirements.

This report examines a Base Case, a High Generation Outage Case, a Low Wind Case and a High Load Case. It discusses which strained conditions might shift in the outlook for energy prices, Operating Reserve Demand Curve (ORDC), Peaker Net Margin (PNM), and congestion.

LCG performed this study using hourly dispatch and its proprietary 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, from minor and major transmission upgrades to gas prices and weather patterns.

If you are interested in receiving the full summer quarter outlook, please contact us at julie.chien@energyonline.com. For more in depth analysis, LCG can provide tailored datasets, such as individualized generator performance, hourly prices, and much more.
