TCEC Guide to the Issues 2017 --Summary of Key Research: The Market-Driven Transition to Texas-Produced Clean Energy

Since 2013, the Texas Clean Energy Coalition (TCEC) has released a series of original, Texas-specific studies by The Brattle Group that analyze how natural gas and renewable energy might interact in the electric grid over the next 20 years, depending on a range of market and regulatory factors. The studies forecast changes in the electric grid overseen by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which manages 90% of the state’s electricity. Taken together, the ongoing Brattle-TCEC research is designed to provide state decision makers with reliable third-party data on how market forces can drive the transition to a cleaner, affordable and more reliable electric grid that relies on Texas-produced energy.
