FERC chairman 'carefully considering' grid study's recommendations


The nation's top electric grid watchdog is carefully considering the recommendations made in the Energy Department's grid study issued late Aug. 23, according to the chairman of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. "This important DOE staff report highlights many activities that the commission is carefully considering, including examining ways to enhance wholesale electric capacity markets and improve price formation in those markets, to increase electric and gas coordination, and to assure bulk power system reliability and resilience," said FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee on Thursday.
