Trump nominates the worst possible candidate to swing the majority of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission into the hands of the fossil and nuke lobbies.

President Donald Trump nominated Bernard L. McNamee to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for the term ending June 30, 2020, to fill the vacancy resulting from Commissioner Robert Powelson's resignation in August, according to an Oct. 9 release from the agency. McNamee currently serves as the Executive Director of the U.S. Energy Department's Office of Policy and was instrumental in designing Energy Secretary Rick Perry's controversial plan to prop up the country's coal and nuclear plants. The nomination would restore the Republican majority among FERC Commissioners at a time when the commission is considering major dockets including a review of the 1999 gas pipeline policy, grid resiliency, and state policy priorities.The U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will consider the nomination at the full committee hearing scheduled for Oct. 16.

Department of Energy Announces $46 Million to Improve Resiliency of Solar Generation

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $46 million in research funding to advance holistic solutions that provide grid operators the situational awareness and mitigation strategies against cyber and physical threats. With more and more solar generation coming online every day, grid operators need the tools and technologies to ensure that the electric grid is resilient and energy services are delivered to critical infrastructure. These projects will develop and validate control strategies, real-time system monitoring, robust communications and other technologies to make solar power at the bulk power and distribution levels more resilient.

Donald Trump knows who's to blame for the worst U.S. stock market selloff since February, and it's definitely not Donald Trump.

The U.S. president accused the "loco" Federal Reserve of "going wild" with interest-rate increases this year while insisting his trade war with China wasn't a factor in yesterday's market rout.

"That wasn't it," he told Fox News, adding "The problem I have is with the Fed."

Most market analysts take the opposite view, attributing the stock plunge mainly to fresh concern about the president's conflict with China.

In a break with White House tradition, Trump has publicly criticized the Fed, led by his appointee Jerome Powell, since July for interest-rate increases, and declared he was "not happy" in September after the third rate hike of the year.

Trump's defensiveness makes sense given the extent to which he's touted market strength as evidence of his success in office. There's less than a month to midterm elections that Democrats are framing as a referendum on his leadership.

The timing of the selloff may be politically dangerous for Republicans as they try to retain control of Congress.

Global Headlines

Brexit deal? | The U.K. and the European Union may be on the cusp of a Brexit breakthrough, though both sides cautioned against celebrating just yet. The devil is in the details, as German Chancellor Angela Merkel reminded everyone. Keeping the Irish border invisible after the U.K. leaves the EU remains the main sticking point. Prime Minister Theresa May's Northern Irish allies, who help her stay in power, are warning her not to sell them out.

Saudi arms
| Trump said he didn't want to block arms sales to Saudi Arabia, amid a swirl of controversy over the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi that includes claims by unnamed Turkish officials that the journalist was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. A bipartisan group of U.S. senators is forcing the Trump administration to investigate, triggering a human rights probe that could result in sanctions against Saudi officials and entities.

Sanctions strains | Trump dismissed a suggestion by South Korea yesterday that it was considering whether to repeal a unilateral package of economic sanctions against North Korea. "Well, they won't do it without our approval," he told reporters. The terse exchange highlighted a gap between Trump's approach and that of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who struck a series of reconciliation agreements with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last month. 

Bannon's Europe | Former White House strategist Steve Bannon said EU states should abandon the euro over time and return to national currencies. He also lauded nationalist leaders including Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban as "heroic" in an interview with Bloomberg News Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait. Bannon said his support of a Brussels-based organization promoting populist groups is aimed at returning the EU to a "collection of sovereign nations" rather than an economically and politically integrated bloc.

Fiery rhetoric | Trump used to attack Democrats as obstructionists determined to block his agenda. Now that they may be poised to seize control of the House, he's painting them in far darker tones. "You don't hand matches to an arsonist and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob and that's what the Democrats have become," Trump said yesterday. Click here for more on the midterm ballot measures that could boost Democratic candidates.

What to Watch
— Italy's lower house is due to vote on a larger budget deficit for next year, ratifying the government's challenge to EU budget rules and the financial markets.

And finally
…Roger Waters divided Pink Floyd fans when his aptly-titled "Us+Them'" tour met Brazil's bitterly polarized politics at a concert in Sao Paolo. He drew mixed reactions when presidential election front-runner Jair Bolsonaro's name was added to a list of "fascist" world leaders projected onto a wall on stage. Waters, known for his political activism, also beamed the #EleNao (#NotHim) hashtag used in protests against Bolsonaro.

Quote from the National Hurricane Center about Hurricane Michael

"We are in new territory," Miami-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) meteorologist Dennis Feltgen wrote on Facebook.

"The historical record, going back to 1851, finds no Category 4 hurricane ever hitting the Florida panhandle."

Reuters news agency reports that Michael is the third-most powerful storm ever to make landfall in the mainland US, after Hurricane Camille in Mississippi in 1969 and the Labor Day hurricane of 1935 in Florida.

Virginia Unveils 10-Year Energy Plan Including 5 Gigawatt Boost to Renewables

Governor Ralph Northam, a Democrat, released Virginia's new energy plan which provides a strategic vision for the commonwealth’s energy policy over the next 10 years. The plan is the implementation strategy of the Grid Transformation and Security Act (Senate Bill 966), signed into law earlier this year. Among other things, the legislation includes 3,000 megawatts of solar and onshore wind to be deployed by 2022, 2,000 megawatts of offshore wind to be deployed by 2028, and for Virginia’s utilities to invest $1.1 billion in energy efficiency programs. The plan also includes cost recovery structures for grid modernization projects that boost distributed energy and recommendations to expand the electric vehicle fleet and supporting infrastructure.

PJM Proposes Options to Tackle Price Distortions From Subsidized Resources

PJM Proposes Options to Tackle Price Distortions From Subsidized Resources

 

PJM Interconnection LLC on Oct. 2 unveiled a proposal addressing a June 29 directive from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to revamp the capacity market rules to address price distortion as the participation of sources receiving out-of-market state revenues continues to grow. The plan proposes an expanded minimum offer price rule or MOPR that would apply to existing and new resources regardless of fuel and technology types, along with a unit-specific carve-out option for resources that do not want to be restricted by the MOPR. The “Resource Carve-Out” mechanism would offer an alternative to MOPR allowing subsidized resources to obtain a capacity commitment without having to clear the capacity market. Recognizing that the mechanism would not completely protect market clearing prices from the “trade-off” resulting from uneconomic resources, the grid operator’s plan includes an “Extended Resource Carve-Out” that adds a price adjustment method to restore clearing prices closer to the competitive outcome. PJM said that the proposal would maintain the integrity of the wholesale markets while respecting state policy priorities. In August, the commission granted PJM’s request to delay the next capacity market auction for the 2022-23 delivery year from May to Aug. 14-28, 2019, to allow more time to implement market reforms.

IPCC: Climate scientists prepare 'life changing' report on climate impacts

Massachusetts Launches SMART Incentive Program to Advance 1.6 Gigawatt Solar Goal

Massachusetts Launches SMART Incentive Program to Advance 1.6 Gigawatt Solar Goal

The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities on Sept. 26 approved compensation for new solar owners under the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target or SMART program, a long-term, sustainable solar incentive solution that replaces the Solar Renewable Energy Certificate or SERC II program. The program has a goal of 1,600 megawatts, implying that ten percent of the state’s annual electricity needs must be met by solar. The department issued regulations for the program in August 2017, following legislation enacted in 2016 that called for a statewide solar incentive program to encourage continued solar generation. The program provides compensation for new solar projects under 5 megawatts in size in the investor-owned utilities service territory allowing solar owners to receive incentives directly from the utility company. While SRECs are market-based instruments with a value that can vary over time, the SMART approach calls for a fixed tariff aimed at establishing predictable revenue, with base compensation rates based on a "declining block structure." The program is expected to save ratepayers an estimated $4.7 billion over current programs. Massachusetts currently has more than 2,200 megawatts of solar installed.
