The polar vortex in Texas sent shock waves into the electrical system that are being felt in Alberta and throughout North America. The lessons to be learned from Texas are particularly germane to Alberta because our deregulated electricity market framework is called an energy only market and Alberta and Texas are the only two jurisdictions in North America to have structured their electricity sector in this way. Given the similarities in market design, the obvious questions include, what happened in Texas? Can it happen in Alberta?  How can Texas fix it? What are the lessons for Alberta?
