Several wholesale capacity markets have experienced low clearing prices in recent years, due in part to state-subsidized resources (renewables and, sometimes, nuclear) outcompeting unsubsidized generators (natural gas and coal) with low bids. Last month, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) released a long-awaited—and controversial—final order that directs regional grid operator PJM to expand its minimum price offer rule (MOPR) to state-subsidized resources in the capacity market. In particular, the FERC’s order requires PJM to set a minimum bid price for all new and existing resources—with some exceptions—that receive out-of-market state subsidies.
By requiring state-subsidized resources to comply with MOPR, market …Find out more »
Carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is recognized by most energy outlooks as an essential component in the portfolio of solutions needed to mitigate climate change. The United States is uniquely positioned as the world leader in CCUS and has substantial capability to drive widespread deployment. The U.S. currently deploys approximately 80% of the world’s CCUS capacity. However, the United States’ 25 million tonnes per annum of CCUS capacity represents less than 1% of U.S. CO2 emissions from stationary sources.
Building on existing research and expertise, Meeting the Dual Challenge addresses the entire CCUS supply chain and recognizes that at-scale …Find out more »
To stabilize the climate and prevent the most catastrophic effects of climate change, we must reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by or soon after 2050. This will require a range of strategies and mechanisms including technological innovation, public policy, and private investment. We are pleased to launch the Climate Solutions Series, a year-long initiative which will bring together a wide range of audiences over six sessions to examine global pathways to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in different sectors of the economy.
The first session will look at various pathways to net-zero emissions, ranging from a significant reduction in …Find out more »

On January 29, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) will release its 2020 Annual Energy Outlook (AEO) at a public event hosted by the Bipartisan Policy Center. EIA releases its Annual Energy Outlook each year to provide updated projections of U.S. energy markets.
The event will feature a presentation by EIA Administrator Dr. Linda Capuano followed by a panel discussion on the challenges and market trends facing the electricity sector.
The Annual Energy Outlook provides modeled projections of domestic energy markets through 2050, and it includes cases with different assumptions about macroeconomic growth, world oil prices, and technological progress. The …Find out more »
In 2014, the State of Wyoming formed a private/public partnership with utilities to construct and operate a one-of-a-kind carbon research facility at Basin Electric Power Cooperative’s Dry Fork Power Station, the Wyoming Integrated Test Center (ITC). Five years later, researchers are working on novel technologies to improve and commercialize carbon capture and utilization methods. Wyoming’s multi-faceted, technology driven approach is advancing not only efforts in the U.S., but how carbon can be effectively managed across the globe.…Find out more »
