It’s not easy to settle on a single word to describe the New York Energy Market as it exists in the present. Intricate comes to mind, so does complex. While we’re at it, let’s throw in interdependent among the descriptive suitors.
These words, however, have always sufficed to describe The New York Energy Market, and there’s no reason to think they’ll lose their relevance in the future.
Maybe an adjective isn’t what we’re looking for. (If it is, we’ve offered three that encompass the market’s omnipresent state.)

I can assure with 100% certainty that you won’t see another gerund in this paper.
