Rensselaer, NY -- The New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) today released the latest episode of its award-winning Power Trends Podcast with guests from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) discussing a variety of factors behind the recent increase in wholesale energy costs.

The EIA collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information to promote sound policymaking, efficient markets, and public understanding of energy and its interaction with the economy and the environment. 

In this episode, Dr. Tyler Hodge, Senior Economist in the Office of Energy Analysis; and Corrina Ricker, Certified Data Scientist on the Natural Gas Markets team delve into findings published in the EIA’s latest Short Term Energy Outlook. The discussion focuses on various national and geopolitical drivers of the recent rise in oil and natural gas costs and how that rise has contributed to an increase in electricity prices in New York.
