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.

The 2018 REO, as well as webpages that highlight and expand on information and statistics in the report, are available at www.iso-ne.com/reo.

Update on the 2017/2018 Winter Reliability Program

2/9/18 update: Preliminary January program usage posted. Please note that the number of program oil barrels used in the program differs from the actual amount of oil burned regionally because participation is capped for each participating generator. Additionally, not all generators participate in the program. Read “Power Systems Update: New England grid operations through recent bitter cold weather and preparation for winter storm” to learn how the winter reliability program has provided critical support again this winter.

For the fifth year in a row, a winter reliability program is in effect in New England to address seasonal reliability challenges created by constraints on New England’s interstate natural gas pipeline system. The program is a short-term, cost-effective effort to help ensure eligible generators have the fuel needed to operate reliably during very cold winter periods.
