Oil inventory was key in maintaining power system reliability through colder-than-normal weather during winter 2013/2014
The frigid temperatures that gripped much of the nation this winter posed operational challenges to the New England power grid, led to spikes in natural gas and wholesale electricity prices, and further highlighted issues related to resource performance and the importance of a secure fuel supply. In light of these challenges, here and across the country, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) hosted a Technical Conference on April 1, to hear from ISO New England, New York ISO, PJM Interconnection, Southwest Power Pool, Midcontinent ISO, California ISO, and other industry representatives about the impact of the cold weather on power system operations in different parts of the country.
