With the dog days of summer are upon us in most parts of the country starting last week and continuing on into this week.  Comparing the recent heat to last year, you can see that the net load is coming in about a week ahead of where things peaked last year. Figure 1 | Net Load for US - 7 Day Rolling Average As load started to march higher over the last two weeks we have see a strong response from the the coal fleet. Last Wednesday's coal generation topped 188 GWs which is is the strongest we have seen all year. Thursday's output looked down but ... » read more

Today's newsletter is a continuation from yesterday, where we discussed how the East, Midwest and South were seeing above normal temperatures which have ultimately shifted up overall loads in the specific regions.  With that comes higher power burns, with the East leading the charge. Figure 1 | US Power Burns - 7 Day Rolling Average As we stated yesterday, the most recent shift in in the power burns has come with the Pacific Northwest and California markets seeing below normal temperatures since coming out of the long 4th of July weekend. Figure 2 | West Average ... » read more

Over the past couple of weeks, the nuclear fleet has seen some volatility in the units that are offline as we get deeper into summer.  As a result, the year on year delta is showing 2.5 GWs more offline for today compared to an year ago.  The month to date average is showing just under 3 GWs more offline.  From a gas perspective, that equates to roughly .5 BCF/d. Figure 1 | Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Outage Table This, along with above normal temperatures seen across the country (except California and Pacific Northwest), plays into how strong the ... » read more

Over the last couple of days we have noticed and interesting development at the Palo Verde import node which connects Southern California and the Desert Southwest. Starting on Tuesday we began to see negative congestion scheduling at the import node in the day ahead market.  The congestion hit to the tune of $10.20 driving down the price at Palo resulting in an $11.14 SP/PV spread.  Figure 1| CAISO DA LMP - 7/12 HL  The congestion hit again for today resulting in $6.6 of congestion and a $8.02 SP/PV spread.  Looking at the list of ... » read more

In our daily and weekly reports we have noted a tightness in the daily supply and demand balances as each successive EIA number reflects a shrinking of the year on year inventory surplus. Now that we are 3 months into the injection season it is time to do a quick accounting of just how the various supply and demand components that make up the balances are faring. In Figure 1, we have done a quick table that depicts how the deficit is shrinking over the past nine weeks. Figure 1 | EIA Component - Year on Year Comparison Columns from left to right: EIA ... » read more

As we head into the middle of July, summer seems to be upon us in most parts of the country as the likes of New York City is looking at highs in the upper 80's/low 90's this week, Houston is in the upper 90's all week and Chicago is sitting in the low 90's early in the week.  This has pushed up the overall net demand, which is not surprising when you look at the trajectory of last year during the same month. Figure 1 | EnergyGPS Net Load - 7 Day Rolling Average As you can see, by the end of the month in 2015, the net load touched the 400 GW mark as Texas was ... » read more

Sometimes I feel like maybe I’m too cynical. Can you blame me? I’ve spent more than 20 years working in the Western US wholesale power arena. I’ve seen my share of ill-advised policies come out of the Golden State. I’ve seen utilities in the rest of the WECC resist change and perpetuate the status quo. That’s not to say all policy innovations out of California have been bad – some have been clearly flawed while others have worked quite well. Resisting change can cut both ways as well. Knowing which innovations to avoid and which to ... » read more

With Houston temperatures consistently coming in between 95-99 degrees during the middle of the day/later afternoon hours, the grid's load profile continues to rise. Figure 1 | ERCOT's Load and Wind Profiles (Net Load) - Hourly As you can see in Figure 1, the overall load profile is increasing faster than the wind generation on the grid, which has been quite strong the past couple of days.  This has led to the Day-Ahead auction results to spike up for a couple of hours in the middle of the afternoon. Figure 2 | ERCOT Net Load with North Zone DA Implied Heat ... » read more

Last week, as the market stared into the holiday weekend, there were plenty of questions as to what the production picture would look like when returning to work this week. Forced outages dominated the headlines prior to the holiday. The first outage was tied to the flooding in West Virginia as it knocked out .5 BCF per day from the Sherwood Processing facility and the Stonewall Gathering system. The second issue was due to the Pascagoula Processing fire that occurred last weekend on the Gulf Coast, where there was .55 BCF on Destin Pipeline and .45 BCF on the ... » read more

The month of June started out quite hot in the Pacific Northwest this year as temperatures topped the 100 degree mark on the first weekend (June 5th) Figure 1 | Portland Metro High Temperatures - June 5, 1016 This was a record for that given day and had everyone talking about how this June is going to rival that of June 2015 when we saw record setting temperatures on given days and across the entire month. Figure 2 | June 2015 - Record Breaking Month As it turns out, the month was nowhere near as warm as last year with only a few days topping the 90 degree mark. » read more
