On October 1, the grid operator for most of California will begin simulating the balancing of subhourly electricity supply and demand for PacifiCorp's electric service areas in the western United States through an energy imbalance market (EIM).
This marks the first time that CAISO will dispatch electricity (see box) for regions lying outside of its footprint. CAISO's energy imbalance market is used to procure electricity to cover unscheduled real-time mismatches between supply and demand.
While resources in the West will automatically respond to electricity imbalances in real-time, there is no commercial structure, such as a market, in most parts of the region that compensates for and optimizes this supply response.
PacifiCorp hopes to see cost savings from the market's usage of lowest-cost generators dispatched more frequently and the market's ability to draw from the much larger pool of generation resources available across the CAISO footprint. Regional grid operators in the United States balance real-time electricity supply and demand by dispatching generation resources at frequent intervals; that is, they instruct generators to run at specific levels of output given the current system's needs. In all of the regional transmission organization (RTO) areas, generators are dispatched every five minutes. In non-RTO areas, including all of the western United States apart from California, generators are typically dispatched every hour. More-frequent dispatch intervals give grid operators more flexibility in adjusting generation to match sudden fluctuations in electricity supply and demand. Further cost savings may be achieved from the ability to absorb the output of renewable resources over a wider geographic area. PacifiCorp will retain all of its normal grid reliability and transmission service responsibilities after joining the imbalance market. EIM-related power transfers between CAISO and the PacifiCorp territories will initially use transmission capacity made available to the EIM by PacifiCorp and capacity currently under CAISO's operational control.
NERC explains that it evaluates certain “key reliability indicators,” including: peak demand, energy forecasts, resource adequacy, transmission development, changes in overall system characteristics and operating behavior.

Led by improvements in drilling and completion technology, well performance, new infrastructure additions and overall better single well economics, the shale gas boom in North America has brought online large amounts of dry natural gas averaging around 79 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day in 2012. Resilient North American natural gas production creates a period of soft prices at a time when North American natural gas demand is growing at a slow pace.
The largest growth in demand is expected to come from the electric power sector driven by an increase in electricity loads and significant coal-fired capacity retirements.
Efficiency gains, population growth concentrated in the South and West, and an increase in electric heating appliances are limiting prospects for residential and commercial North American natural gas demand growth despite the increase in the number of customers.
Several gas-intensive industrial segments (chemicals, primary metals, non-metallic minerals, food) are poised to grow owing to a combination of low natural gas prices and a recovery in key end-use markets such as automotive and construction.

Renewable energy developers seeking the next big thing should turn their sails toward Latin America, where growing electricity demand, pro-renewable government policies, and limited fossil fuel resources are creating one of the world’s fastest-growing wind power markets. Over the next decade, annual wind power capacity installations will double as more than 20,000 new wind turbines are built across 15 countries, according to Navigant Research’s Latin America Wind Market Assessment. Although modest overall in comparison to established wind markets in Europe, North America, and Asia, the Latin American market could balance out recent boom or bust demand trends and keep the wind industry aloft for years to come. Many Latin American nations rely on hydropower for their electricity supply, but seasonal rainfall trends have varied in recent years, exacerbating nagging energy shortages. At that pace, Latin America will have 5.5 percent of all global installed capacity in 2013 and 5 percent of all worldwide capacity additions by 2022. In addition, the government now requires developers to ensure grid access to adequate transmission capacity. Not to be outdone, Mexico installed over 800 megawatts (MW) in 2012 and should pass 2GW cumulative capacity by the end of 2014. Mexico is also home to two innovative policies fueling market growth: A self-supply scheme allow partnerships between large power consumers and wind developers to own and build new wind farms to meet their own electricity demand, while regional transmission needs are proactively identified by the government and built in coordination with private developers as new wind farms go online. American- and Canadian-based companies are uniquely positioned to take advantage of Mexico’s wind market growth due to the North American Free Trade Agreement, as they can avoid a 15 percent import duty, providing an outlet for manufacturers concerned about slowing American demand. Cumulative wind installations in the 13 other nations will be modest, but collectively should hit 1GW annually in 2014, creating a truly regional market. Each country in the Latin American wind race has its own set of local market conditions, but pulling back to look at the region makes it clear that wind power is growing like never before across the region.

Join us regularly as we look at regional and global upstream trends and play analysis, cost & operations impacts, and other facets which impact and are impacted by unconventionals. IHS expects North American production to remain resilient despite the decrease in the number of rig count. Natural gas-fired electric power generation will replace those retirements and will constitute around 50% of North American electric power generating capacity additions by 2020 (renewables will constitute the remaining percentage of additions).
IHS CERA expects a small uptick in commercial consumption and a flat to a slight decrease in residential consumption by 2020. Industrial natural gas demand gains will be concentrated in the Gulf Coast and the Midwest, as well as in Alberta (driven by oil sands production) and Ontario. Engage with our team of experts as we explore new activity, emerging technology as well as regional & global trends. As foreign manufacturers have invested in new factories, domestic electrical demand has surged.
In addition, several regional economies have limited oil and gas reserves, leaving policymakers to explore alternative energy sources.
Until recent years, wind has been a modest part of the region’s energy mix, with just under 4.9 gigawatts (GW) installed capacity at the end of 2012, according to the Global Wind Energy Council.
While other established markets experience single-digit or negative growth rates, the countries in Navigant’s study will average a 22.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), with four countries (Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Cuba) exceeding 30 percent CAGR. As expected, Mexico and Brazil, the “twin pillars” of the Latin American economy and already home to nearly 4GW of installed wind capacity, will dominate the regional wind market. Federal regulations impose a de facto 60 percent local content sourcing requirement, meaning international developers need to either locate manufacturing in the country or partner with local companies. However, power contracts in recent years have averaged $50 per megawatt-hour (MWh) – meaning if you can build it, you’ll profit from it. However, wind currently only provides 2.5 percent of national power supply and the country has a 35 percent renewable electricity by 2024 goal, meaning demand will skyrocket in short order.

China is the biggest market for electric two wheelers with an estimated market size of 19 million in 2009 growing at a CAGR of 9% to 2017. Brushless DC which has the advantage of low noise and maintenance now holds a majority share.The Chinese two wheeler market is highly fragmented with many local companies making it extremely price sensitive and competitive. About 60% (11 Bcf per day) of total natural gas demand growth in North America will come from the electric power sector by 2020. IHS CERA expects an uptick in North American industrial natural gas consumption of 3 to 4 Bcf per day by 2020. However, underinvestment in transmission and generation hasn’t been able to keep pace, generating grid reliability concerns. Brazil set a goal of 10GW by 2025 total wind power capacity goal, and Navigant notes it’s on track to hit that mark by 2017. North America and Europe are expected to have a surge in demand for traction motors as hybrid and electric vehicle markets boom.
The growth will come in spurts coinciding with the additional retirement of coal-fired power plants in 2015 as the Mercury and Air Toxic Standards rule comes into effect in April of that year, and with the completion of planned petrochemical projects. Brady is a regularly provides market analysis on supply and demand fundamentals and key trends in the global downstream industry, including an investigation of peak gasoline demand in the United States and the potential for plug-in hybrid electric cars. More than a 100 electric vehicle models are lined up for mass market between now and 2017, indicating immense opportunities for electric motor suppliers and related companies.
About 90% of expected natural gas demand growth in the United States from 2010 to 2020 will come from the electric power sector, LNG exports and pipeline exports to Mexico.
Increase in prices stimulates production and could take the market to an oversupply position especially if the increase in supply comes in after the surge in demand. If producers do not anticipate demand increases and consequently ramp up production well before seeing a price signal, North American natural gas supply will be constantly chasing demand for the rest of the decade. Brady was a consultant in the oil industry, focusing on downstream regulatory issues including the transition to ethanol in the California gasoline market.
