Short-Term Energy Outlook

Feb 11, 2020
EIA expects global petroleum and liquid fuels demand will average 100.3 million barrels per day (b/d) in the first quarter of 2020.

EIA now expects global petroleum and liquid fuels demand will rise by 1.0 million b/d in 2020, which is lower than the forecast increase in the January STEO of 1.3 million b/d in 2020, and by 1.5 million b/d in 2021.

ISO-New England’s annual Forward Capacity Market auction set to take place on February 3, 2020

Jan 29, 2020
On Monday, February 3, 2020, the Independent System Operator for New England (ISO-NE) will open its annual Forward Capacity Market (FCM) auction. ISO-NE uses the FCM auctions to ensure that the New England power system will have sufficient resources to meet future demand for electricity. Owners of various resources compete in the annual auctions to obtain a Capacity Supply Obligation (CSO) in exchange for receiving a market-priced capacity payment. The payments provide incentives for investing in new resources and also provide a stable revenue stream for existing power resources that help meet peak load on the system.

Hourly electricity consumption varies throughout the day and across seasons

average hourly U.S. electricity load during typical week
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, U.S. Hourly Electric Grid Monitor
Note: Data shown represent the average aggregate U.S. hourly load (Eastern Standard Time) by day of the week for the months indicated between 2015 and 2019.

The electricity consumed in a given period (often referred to as electricity load) varies throughout the year in somewhat predictable patterns. Total U.S. hourly electricity load is generally highest in the summer months when demand peaks in the afternoon as households and businesses are using air conditioning on hot days. During the winter months, hourly electricity load is less variable but peaks in both the morning and the evening. Load is generally lowest in the spring and autumn when homes and businesses have less need for space heating or cooling.
