Too cold for Texas? Electricity demand and capacity in ERCOT during cold-snap of Feb '21Ydo Wexler, Geert Scholma | February 17, 2021
The last several days were some of the coldest on record in Texas, and with power out for a quarter of households in the state at times, it brought back memories from a decade ago, when a similar thing occurred for similar reasons. Now, just like in 2011, the extreme cold led to a combination of a spike in electricity load demand and a sharp decrease in capacity, which forced ERCOT to implement rolling blackouts.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Energy MarketsGeert Scholma | April 14, 2020
As of April 13th, 2020, about a third of the worldwide population currently lives in some form of quarantine or curfew. Many shops have been closed, as well as bars, restaurants, hotels, theatres, schools, offices, museums, libraries, and attractions. This has had a significant attenuating impact on electricity demand, which has been the topic of several articles. The most common type of analysis that has been performed compares historical load ratios either week over week or year over year. However, there are many more factors that need to be taken into account to get an accurate estimation for the impact of lockdowns on regional electricity demand.
