Revised September 2019, Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA)
Researcher Bryndis Woods and Director of Resource Planning Analysis at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) David Schlissel prepared a report that presents three major risks confronting the Indian coal sector: (1) The over-building of coal-fired capacity; (2) Increasing competition from renewable energy sources, particularly during the monsoon season; and 3) Declining water supplies.
September 2019, Mothers Out Front
Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD, and Assistant Researcher Eliandro Tavares prepared a white paper that analyzed the need for the Hampton Roads spur of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The white paper concludes that: Virginia Natural Gas (VNG) has substantially overstated its annual peak demand growth forecasts; VNG has presented no evidence that any gas supply constraint could affect electric supply in the region; and it appears that any industrial gas curtailments in the Hampton Roads area have been voluntary in exchange for price reductions.
September 2019, Conservation Law Foundation
On behalf of Conservation Law Foundation, Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD provided Applied Economics Clinic expert testimony in Docket 17-152 before the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission. In her testimony, Dr. Stanton addresses the need to evaluate the environmental impacts of new gas infrastructure in particular as it relates to climate change. Her testimony concludes that Liberty Gas’s least cost integrated resource plan fails to adequately address or assess the climate change impacts of the Company’s planned expansion of natural gas.
