The United States Department of Energy National Laboratories and Technology Centers are a system of facilities and laboratories overseen by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) for scientific and technological research.  Sixteen of the seventeen DOE national laboratories are federally funded research and development centers administered, managed, operated and staffed by private-sector organizations under management and operating (M&O) contract with the DOE.  The National Energy Technology Laboratory is the exception.

  • In the Short-Term Energy Outlook Supplement released on October 4, we analyzed how variability in electricity demand and wind generation affects hourly electricity prices in Texas’s wholesale power market under summer peak-day conditions, when summer electricity demand is highest. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT)—which runs the wholesale power market in Texas—has had significant peak-load growth in recent years (16% between 2011 and 2022) and significantly increased its wind generation (from 9% of the electricity generation mix in 2011 to 24% in 2021). We found that both high levels of electricity demand and low wind availability can significantly raise wholesale prices in ERCOT, supported by its market design. When combined, these factors can lead to especially sharp price spikes during summer peak-day conditions.
  • In the second quarter of 2022, China processed the least crude oil since the first quarter of 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic had the strongest effect on China's economic activity. The resurgence of COVID-19 cases since March 2022 and China's policy of localized mobility restrictions explain China's reduced demand for petroleum products, and as a result, reduced refinery activity, in the second quarter of 2022.
  • Residential and commercial U.S. natural gas prices were relatively high throughout 2021 and have exceeded the previous five-year (2017�21) range so far this year, according to our recently released Natural Gas Monthly. In real terms, the 2021 annual residential price was the highest since 2014, and the commercial price was the highest since 2015. For January�July 2022, the nominal residential price averaged $13.25 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf), 25% higher than for the same period in 2021. The commercial price averaged $10.50/Mcf, which was 33% higher.
  • Hurricane Ian made landfall on Florida�s western coast on September 28 as a Category 4 hurricane. The hurricane-related rain and wind and the resulting flooding disrupted key gasoline supply chains to the state. Florida does not have any refineries or gasoline pipelines that connect it to states with excess supply. Florida's gasoline is delivered by ship from domestic and international sources. Because of the storm, several ports were temporarily closed, and the remaining ports were open with restrictions.
