Peter Fox-Penner, Principal and Chairman, The Brattle Group is the opening keynote at Texas Renewables 2012 Conference, December 10 – 13. The Brattle Group has released several reports studying electric reliability in Texas and Fox-Penner's insights could be valuable to renewable energy industry leaders as they prepare for the coming Texas legislative session.
In June of this year economic consultants at The Brattle Group released a report on The Potential Impact of Solar PV on Electricity Markets in Texas, addressing Electric Reliability Council of Texas, ERCOT resource adequacy concerns. It provided recommendations to improve long-term reliability through generation investment. The report identified options to better align market design and reliability objectives. The report concluded that if the state of Texas had just 1,000 megawatts of solar energy electric generation on line during the summer of 2011’s record peaking demand, Texas would have seen over $167 million in customer benefits, and 5,000 megawatts would have upped the savings to more than $520 million.
At Texas Renewables 2012 Peter Fox-Penner, Principal and Chairman, The Brattle Group will provide the opening keynote. As we approach the coming legislative session in Texas Fox-Penner’s insights will be helpful and provide necessary data to add strength and credibility to industry leaders who hope to influence policy.
