Texas suffered through an arctic blast during the week of 15 February 2021 that left millions without power after the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) was faced with dual challenges of a demand surge and power-supply shortfall. IHS Markit North American Power Market Research Directors Doug Giuffre, Mike Pickens, and Wade Shafer join EnergyCents to discuss the events in Texas, contrast with this summer’s weather-induced blackouts in California, and how we should be thinking about power markets going forward.
