    Total ISO Gas Generation Cedes Market Share to Coal Generation in 1Q2013

    Total generation and total loads in the seven ISOs across the country (CAISO, NEISO, NYISO, PJM, ERCOT, MISO and SPP) during 1Q2013 were up 2% and 3%, respectively, from the same period last year. Generation was up in every ISO except NEISO, where generation declined 8% and load increased 3%, and SPP where both generation and load fell 1%, or 742,000 GWh. Total ISO coal generation during 1Q2013 increased 14%, or 32,564 GWh over the same period last year while total gas generation declined 14%, or 18,258 GWh. Coal generation was up in every ISO (CAISO is the only ISO without coal generation) while gas generation declined in every ISO except in CAISO where generation from gas resources increased 4%. In 1Q2012 total ISO coal generation dropped 21%, or 61,836 GWh from 1Q2011 while total gas generation increased 35% or 34,656 GWh over the same period. Colder weather over last year has increased electricity demand this year and higher gas prices have made diminished gas' share of generation stacks across the country.
