Draft load forecast indicates energy usage and peak demand will decline slightly over the next 10 years

ISO New England develops an annual projection of how much electricity the region will use every year for the next 10 years, as well as how high demand will peak during each of those years. The 10-year forecast is a key system planning tool, helping ensure New England has an adequate supply of resources to meet future demand and a transmission system that can do the job of carrying power to residents and businesses.

The draft long-term forecast for 2018 to 2027 projects that energy usage and peak demand will decline slightly in New England over the 10-year period. The primary factors are continuing installation of energy-efficiency measures and behind-the-meter photovoltaic (BTM PV) arrays throughout the region.

ISO-NE publishes 2018 Regional Electricity Outlook 

ISO New England has published its 2018 Regional Electricity Outlook (REO), an annual report looking at the trends and challenges affecting New England’s power system, as well as the innovative solutions the ISO is pursuing to ensure reliable electricity for the region’s homes and businesses—today and into the future. The report describes changes to the region’s electric grid over the past two decades, and how the ISO is working to keep New England on the cutting edge as the region’s electricity industry rapidly evolves towards a future of renewable and natural gas resources.
