Assessment of the COVID-19 pandemic effect on regional electricity generation mix in NYISO, MISO, and PJM markets

August 21, 2020

In this paper published in The Electricity Journal, the authors explore the impacts of the stay-at-home advisory issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic on regional electricity generation fuel mixes for the three major RTOs: NYISO, MISO, and PJM. We find that the COVID-19 pandemic affected these regional markets differently, although one common finding is that overall electricity generation declined after the stay-at-home advisories were issued. We also empirically tested the impact of the stay-at-home advisories on electricity generation for different fuel types.
