CleanTechnica: AEE: Changing energy mix does not affect reliability

Posted by Advanced Energy Economy on Jun 20, 2017

New analysis report from the Analysis Group shows that the changing mix of the energy sector will not hurt the reliability of energy for consumers. From the story: 

Now, expecting the DoE’s report to drop any day now, a new report by Analysis Group — conducted on behalf of the Advanced Energy Economy and American Wind Energy Association — entitled Electricity Markets, Reliability, and the Evolving U.S. Power System, has concluded that the shifting nature of the US electricity sector does not endanger electric system reliability. Further, Analysis Group concluded that it is market forces — primarily the rise of low-cost natural gas and a flat demand for electricity — that are behind the retirement of coal and nuclear plants across the US, and not federal and state policies supporting renewable energy development.
