Platts power market reporters Eric Wieser and Kassia Micek walk through the demand peaks of the winter and the impacts on prices. Hear how prices reacted as electricity demand hit an all-time winter record level in the PJM Interconnection in February and energy customers in the Tennessee Valley Authority area pushed electricity demand to a new February peak record. Additionally, in the Northeast, power markets are recalibrating in the wake of changes to the regional natural gas landscape.
