What's Next for Texas After the Recent Generation-Related Power Outage? Dr. Samuel Newell to Discuss at PMT Webinar

Brattle Principal Dr. Samuel Newell will join a Power Markets Today (PMT) webinar, “What’s Next for Texas Markets After Winter Disaster?,” to discuss the recent Texas power outage on April 14 from 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (PT) | 2:00–3:30 p.m. (ET). 

The webinar will address the Electric Reliability Council of Texas’ (ERCOT’s) recent generation-related power outage after a cold snap and winter storm led to frozen equipment at power plants of all types and stressed the natural gas system that could not deliver the fuel, shutting down even more power plants. The panelists will discuss how the retail industry is dealing with the price spikes and the fallout, what is likely to change in the Texas markets going forward, and whether the event could lead to any changes in reliability standards.
