Strategic Planning on Natural Gas Projects

EmberClear is bringing a new generation of cleaner energy projects to America, particularly in PJM and MISO regions. Each project creates hundreds of millions of dollars of beneficial economic impact to local economies.

The Abundance of Natural Gas in the United States

Has created an unprecedented opportunity to convert a low-cost, local commodity into valuable opportunity to create jobs and build communities. The natural gas boom is also enabling a new wave of cleaner power plants to replace 30,000 MW of planned decommissioning of legacy coal-based power plants, affecting over 30 million households.

Both MISO and PJM are currently served by aging fleets of at-risk coal-fired and nuclear generating stations. Despite 20,200 MW of coal-fired retirements since 2012 in PJM and another 15,000 MW of primarily coal and nuclear capacity retirements announced/expected through 2020, further retirements represent an additional upside to power and capacity price projections driven by:

  • (a) The risk and expense of retrofitting to meet PJM’s Capacity Performance reliability standards,
  • (b) Known environmental regulation working its way through the court system as well as potential environmental legislation, and
  • (c) Deep-rooted power sector economic fundamentals.

MISO region is following a similar path.

Our core strategy places projects near the sources of plentiful natural gas in the Marcellus and Utica Shale region. These projects will provide America with low-cost, clean energy for domestic consumption, create greater energy independence from imported energy, and help ensure the stability of the national electric grid.

EmberClear is a privately owned company that has been in operations since 2003.
