  1. Trump Picks New Head of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

    By Editors of Power Engineering President Donald Trump has selected Cheryl LaFleur, an Obama appointee, as the acting chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission . LaFleur is a Democrat and a former utility executive, Bloomberg reported. She was named to the commission in 2010 and has previously served as acting chairman from November 2013 to July 2014, and as chairman from July 2014 through April 2015. LaFleur was previously executive vice president and acting CEO of National Grid USA. On the agency’s website, LaFleur indicated grid security, regional transmission line planning and a “clean and diverse” power supply are her top priorities. She replaces Norman Bay , who was chairman for the last two years. Bay announced on his Twitter account he will resign from the commission entirely Feb. 3. The move will leave the normally five-member commission with just two members – LaFleur and Colette D. Honorable. FERC will soon review a number of gas pipeline projects from companies including Energy Transfer Partners LP and William Partners LP. Bloomberg noted Bay had worked to draft rules that would increase transparency and prevent abusive, and had alleged energy companies including BP Plc and Total SA had manipulated energy markets.
