EIA Publishes Regional Electricity Supply and Pricing Forecasts Using UPLAN Model

LCG, August 13, 2019--The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) announced that it is revising the presentation and modeling of its forecasts for electricity supply and market hub pricing to better reflect current electricity markets and system operations in the U.S. Beginning with the August 2019 Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), the new forecasting approach models electricity markets using the UPLAN production cost optimization software developed by LCG Consulting. EIA uses the solution results provided by this proprietary model to develop the STEO forecasts of monthly electricity generation, fuel consumption, and wholesale prices.

Landfill Becomes Source of Power

LCG, March 18, 2002-A Pennsylvania landfill has become a source of electric power.

600,000 cubic feet of methane gas will be combusted to power a Caterpillar generator at the West Burlington landfill. The heat will be used to decompose organic waste and generate electricity.

The little system will product 800 kilowatts to be sold on the open market.

Other landfills prevent methane-related accidents by burning excess gas already released, but the Pennsylvania landfill has drilled wells in the landfill and used blowers to extract gas from the wells to supply their generator.

PPL Energy Services, a subsidiary of the PPL Corporation, managed the project, saying that their system reduces greenhouse gas emissions by limiting "landfill gas," the odorless methane that landfills produce as waste decays.
