The GT Power Hour: Episode 18 (Capacity-Market Deep Dive)
In which Glen and Rory dig deep to break down PJM’s capacity construct: where it’s been, where it’s going, how it compares to other regional grids and the major forces at play in shaping its future. But that’s not all! (It never is.) TB12 and the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip make appearances in the conversation as Glen coins the phrase “that warm barn of regulation” and presages the blackouts in Texas that would occur just hours after recording the episode. What should become of the MOPR? Are PJM and its member states still invested in competitive markets? What’s the deal with monopsony market-power? Can state statutes play nice with market forces? How does the new-look FERC impact all of this? Does New Jersey’s new market-design idea have legs? No questions barred and all things considered, it’s a discussion about electricity supply and system reliability that you don’t want to miss!

The GT Power Hour: Episode 17 (The Right Manu for the Job)
In which we probe deep into the mind of Manu Asthana one year into his tenure as PJM's president and CEO, and he proves to be up to the task - both in the interview and the job. Ranging from the MOPR, the ORDC, the NJBPU's state-agreement approach on analyzing offshore wind and a word salad of other industry jargon to the pandemic and social-justice movements, we explore our guest's perspectives on a wide variety of topics - and consistently return to themes of unity and equality that might be exactly the kind of leadership PJM needs right now.

The GT Power Hour: Episode 16 (Season 1 Year-in-Review Holiday Special)
In which Glen and Rory mark the end of Season 1 by kicking back and reviewing the year that was in their own signature way: debating over lists! Without ruining the suspense, expect to hear about the MOPR, action on carbon and climate, the ascendancy of the Washington Football Team and the ending of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ bid for an undefeated season, a return to stronger pandemic restrictions and what that means for PJM, ELCC, nuclear-bailout scandals, interconnection frustrations, stakeholder tensions and organizational challenges at PJM. Don’t like our lists? Send us a note and tell us what we missed… Happy holidays and see you next year!

The GT Power Hour: Episode 15 (Chatterjee, Part Deux: A Nation Still Calls)
In which we once again subject FERC Commissioner Neil Chatterjee to the now-infamous Power Hour gauntlet for our one-year anniversary to sift through the fallout of an historic election, discuss the backlash he received for pushing the policy envelope and prognosticate on the state of affairs when this new administration's term concludes. In the aftermath of tectonic shifts to the landscape and now unencumbered by the confines of the chairmanship, our guest's rules of engagement have changed, and nothing escapes his crosshairs as we sweep the theater of operations, from the "Chevron deference" doctrine and the Jones Act to carbon pricing, his future in public service, his former boss Sen. Mitch McConnell, Tom Brady and USA Rugby. In a world on the brink of an energy revolution… with incendiary ideological conflict spilling into the halls of power and division at the highest levels… one man stands unbowed, ready to bridge the divide. Don't miss our talk with him!

The GT Power Hour: Episode 14 (What Would Cheryl Do?: The Game Show)
In which we pressure Cheryl LaFleur, the former-FERC commissioner and current distinguished visiting fellow at Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy, for hot takes on her fields of expertise - specifically the ones where her beloved New England Patriots are playing. Hustling as efficiently as a Tom Brady two-minute drill, we also go deep into the nuances of carbon pricing, how annoying fellow former-FERC Commissioner Rob Powelson was, the importance of not imputing bad intent from colleagues, maintaining FERC/state relationships, ensuring someone is responsible for and authorized to maintain reliability (we’re looking at you, California…), the ongoing transition to the grid of the future, being put in “the odd position of trying to explain climate skepticism” and the idyllic atmosphere for a dirty vodka martini. Don’t miss a minute!
59 minutes | Sep 15, 2020
The GT Power Hour: Episode 13 (One Hill of an Interview!)
In which we sit down with Calpine President/CEO Thad Hill for our first “executive interview” and end up picking his brain about everything from insights from leading the company back to private ownership in 2018 to how Vice President Biden can earn cred for his campaign’s environmental platform to whether the Ivy League or the SEC has the most insufferable fans. Oh yeah, there’s also carbon pricing, capacity markets, what’s gone wrong (and right) in California, which Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is currently on his nightstand and our requisite (but brief) ruminations on sports. It’s worth a listen during your one-hour workout.
59 minutes | Aug 14, 2020
The GT Power Hour: Episode 12 (How to Handle a Scandal: A Utility Commissioner's Guide)
In which we task Todd Snitchler, President/CEO of the Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA), with leveraging his experiences as both a state legislator and utility-commission chairman in Ohio to help us break down the FirstEnergy and ComEd nuclear-subsidy legislation scandals, offer unsolicited advice to state officials across the board and ponder whether the way things are will ever change. The responses may surprise you... We go on to discuss EPSA's role as the vanguard of competition in electricity markets, Todd's roots in the Twin Tiers of Pennsylvania and New York, a comparison of dive bars in capital cities and the best golf course for somewhat-middling skills.
51 minutes | Jul 9, 2020
The GT Power Hour: Episode 11 (New Jersey Brand Recognition)
In which we ask Stefanie Brand, the the Director for the New Jersey Division of Rate Counsel, to not only defend her adopted state but also hold it accountable, which - as the state's consumer advocate, she of course does with aplomb. FRR, MOPR, ZECs... they're all here - as is the Taylor Ham/Pork Roll controversy, why everyone dumps on NJ, whether Central Jersey exists, love for New York, Pennsylvania, Jacob DeGrom and Michelle Obama, living as a Mets fan, the Jersey Shore Sound and feeling like an underdog, Eagles vs. Giants, Phillies vs. Mets (and why that's even the question)... all-Jersey all the time on this episode. Check it while you're chilling down the shore.
