Report summary

Our demand forecast remains mostly unchanged from our previous outlook with support coming from gas intensive industrial demand along the Gulf Coast. In terms of supply we add nearly 2 GW of new wind and solar each over the forecast. This new renewable capacity helps to put pressure on both coal and natural gas balances. In the WECC we have revised up our hydro forecast further displacing both coal and gas generation in a number of markets across the region.
