“Unsettled” seems to be the new norm for power markets in the Northeast. Lingering fuel security concerns burst out into the open with the proposed retirement of the Mystic Generation facilities. The region is now amidst discussions on long-term solutions to put to rest these concerns and avoid the need for out-of-market action. Where are these efforts headed? The shift to fuel security follows a year spent developing a framework to accommodate state policies aimed at influencing resource decisions to achieve policy goals related to the environment and jobs. Meanwhile, PJM confronts these same issues, but with strong direction from FERC toward solutions that differ from the path taken in New England. What does this portend for our region? And, new sources of demand may spur a new surge in total demand growth. What does this growth portend for the markets, and what complications for reliability and integration of demand into the markets might they create? NECA's 2017 Power Markets Conference will address these and many more important questions from the unsettled market environment.
