Online

December 1, 2022

CAISO Forecast 4.1 Preview: Tax Credits, Gas Prices & Scarcity - Oh My! | 11am - 12pm MT |The perfect storm of high gas prices, inflation, growing demand, and extreme weather creates a strong foundation for the earning potential of renewables and storage in CAISO. At the same time, supply chain challenges and interconnection queue logjams have impeded new resource buildout. The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act adds additional force to expedite the energy transition but will have limited ability to release the pressure in the near-term. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of Ascend's latest CAISO forecast, discussing 2022's eventful year to date and the impact on future price projections.

Inflation Reduction Act: Fuel on the Fire

Boulder, CO

September 14, 2022

With rising gas prices, stranded asset risks for thermals, and growing renewable penetrations, renewables and storage were already the most economic new resources in most markets even before the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act improved their economic outlook. While Ascend already forecasted aggressive renewable buildouts, the extension of the Investment Tax Credit to standalone storage significantly improves the merchant viability in storage in marginal markets. This webinar will cover key developments since Ascend's last forecasts and estimated changes for upcoming releases.
