U.S. FERC's Moeller Sees Need For Full Rulemaking On Gas/Electric Coordination

While the commission considers whether a market scheduling rule is needed, it is also looking at updating its code of business practices "to make sure that the right people are talking to each other" during a gas shortage for generators. The legal analysis that would be required to make changes is under way at FERC, Moeller said.

The warm 2011-12 winter in the eastern U.S. "may have masked" the significant challenges posed by gas-electric coordination, he said.

Moeller is serving his second term on the commission. Prior to joining FERC, he headed up the Washington, D.C., office of Alliant Energy and before that worked for Calpine, also in the nation's capital. From 1997 through 2000, Moeller served as an energy policy adviser to U.S. Senator Slade Gorton of Washington.
