WGL Energy to Discuss Distributed Impact at CampusEnergy2018

Integrating District Energy into the Redevelopment of the Walter Reed Campus

 

WGL Energy (WGL Energy Services and WGL Energy Systems) representatives will attend the International Direct Energy Association's (IDEA's) CampusEnergy2018 conference from March 5-9, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. The conference brings together industry leaders to explore emerging technologies, share solutions and advance a new energy paradigm for campus energy systems.

WGL Energy is a Corporate Silver Sponsor and a Greening Sponsor of this year’s conference. As a Greening Sponsor, WGL Energy Services will donate carbon offsets to counterbalance the greenhouse gas emissions incurred from this event (such as energy use, hotel stays, food and other waste) — equivalent to avoiding greenhouse gas emissions from twelve cars for one year.

On Wednesday, March 7, 2018, Charles (Chuck) Miller, Distributed Generation Asset Development Manager, WGL Energy Systems, will discuss WGL Energy’s role in Integrating District Energy into the Redevelopment of the Walter Reed Campus. Chuck will share his insights about the unique challenges and solutions he discovered while working on the Walter Reed campus project.


 

Be sure to attend the Integrating District Energy into the Redevelopment of the Walter Reed Campus session at CampusEnergy2018 on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at 10:30 am in Holiday 1-3.

Weekly review for February 25 - March 3, 2018

 

On Thursday, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that working gas in storage as of Friday, February 23, 2018 was 1,682 BCF. This is a decrease of 78 BCF from the previous week. Inventories are currently 680 BCF lower than last year at this time and 372 BCF below the 5-year average of 2,054 BCF.

Current forecasts are predicting that temperatures will return to normal for the next several weeks and with the winter weather risk nearly in the rear view mirror, prices and volatility have stagnated this week. It seems the only real catalysts that could cause either to vacillate are either an unpredictable weather pattern shift late in the season or possible congestion due to outages.

Forward markets moved up slightly this week as the PJM West Hub 12-Month curve increased 0.47% and the NYMEX natural gas 12-month curve gained 1.5%.

**Heating degree days are calculated by comparing the day’s average temperature to a 65 degree baseline. If the day’s average temperature is above 65, there are no heating degree days that day. If the day's average temperature is less than 65 degrees, subtract the average temperature from 65 to find the number of heating degree days for that day.
