How Well Did Wind Energy Perform During the Bomb Cyclone?

How Well Did Wind Energy Perform During the Bomb Cyclone?

Extreme weather events offer an opportunity to take stock of our power system—how well will it withstand days of prolonged stress? Earlier this year, the eastern half of the U.S. faced one of these trials, as the "Bomb Cyclone" blasted the region with frigid air for a number of days. The result: no major power plant outages, and a power system that held strong in the face of challenging weather conditions. And wind power made an important contribution to a resilient energy mix, helping to keep the lights on for American families and businesses. As was the case during the 2014 Polar Vortex event and the Texas 2011 cold snap , wind output was well above average when the power system needed it most. Across the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast throughout the Bomb Cyclone event, wind production surpassed both average winter and average annual output. Let's first look at PJM, the ...
