Key ISO-NE Electricity and Natural Gas Market Catalysts

Major Trends Shaping New England Power Sector in 2019
From fuel security to grid resiliency to batteries and wind growth, learn about the issues that will define 2019:

  • In 2018, FERC approved significant changes to the capacity auctions in ISO-NE, and moved New England closer to valuing "fuel security," or the ability for power plants to store fuel onsite 

  • In 2019, those fuel security and grid resilience debates are likely to intensify alongside continued discussion over the retirement of coal and nuclear plants 

  • ISO-NE is required to file long-term capacity plans at FERC by June – with a commission more friendly to coal and nuclear interests

    Learn how to navigate these challenges at our one-day conferences, led by national power and gas expert Andy Weissman and held in an intimate classroom-style setting. Register and save $100!
