The California Independent System Operator (ISO) is expanding its real-time market to include other balancing authorities in the West in its implementation of the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM), which is the automated system that balances electricity supply and demand every five minutes by choosing the least-cost resource to meet the needs of the grid. In October of this year, the ISO’s EIM goes “live” with PacifiCorp, serving customers in six states. Both the ISO and PacifiCorp recently received conditional approval of their filings to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and are proceeding with testing and market simulation. This webinar will provide an overview of the EIM, the current status of its implementation and a look to the future – including anticipated work following the October start date and an overview of the Transitional Committee which is an advisory body to the ISO Board on EIM issues.
Attendees will learn:
