E3 has been selected for the Western Interstate Energy Board (WIEB) and State-Provincial Steering Committee's Western Natural Gas - Electric Infrastructure and System Flexibility Assessment project. There will be two phases of the project over approximately a 9 month period. Phase 1 will address natural gas infrastructure adequacy to meet the needs of the electric industry in the Western Interconnection, and Phase 2 will address operational level issues to meet electric industry requirements. WIEB announces: "E3 enjoys a strong reputation in the West for their forward thinking methodologies and quality work. They have worked with a number of entities in the West including SPSC, WECC, WEIL, CPUC, CEC, and CAISO. More recently, E3 has developed new software and case studies that puts them at the forefront of modeling the operational challenges of high renewable energy penetration scenarios. E3 has partnered with GL Noble Denton (GL) for the gas modeling. GL is a diverse company that offers a range of engineering consultancy services to the oil and gas, pipeline and utility industries. They serve clients worldwide and a number of their clients, including natural gas transportation clients, are in the West." For the full WIEB announcement see www.westgov.org/ngei/index.htm
