New England is in the midst of a major shift in its energy landscape: coal and nuclear units are retiring, placing a priority on large-scale generation that also meets pending environmental policy requirements for clean energy. There is also a capacity crunch in the natural gas market in New England, with current pipeline systems constrained. This half day session will focus on these issues from the perspective of what current solutions are being presented and their implications for New England’s energy future. Will importing large-scale hydroelectric power from Canada provide the low-carbon baseload generation needed? Will expanding the pipeline infrastructure solve the capacity crunch? Will New England benefit from additional natural gas-fired generation? These questions and more will be addressed at this highly relevant and timely event.
