API’s study to examine the reliability characteristics or “diversity of attributes” of natural gas for power generation

A detailed study commissioned by the American Petroleum Institute and conducted by the Brattle Group finds that as the U.S. electric industry continues to be transformed from a heavy reliance on coal and nuclear to more variable energy sources, grid operators should be focused on a key reliability attributes. The study measures whether a wide number of energy resources are relatively advantaged, neutral or disadvantaged when measured against these reliability attributes.
