In particular, panelists should discuss the particular capacity market design features that encourage merchant investment in resources and infrastructure. Panelists will be asked to discuss how the capacity market is addressing local and state-wide resource adequacy and reliability issues at just and reasonable rates. Finally, panelists should discuss what changes, if any, should be considered going forward to improve the performance of NYISO’s capacity market. Panelists should be prepared to discuss the following questions: a. How do particular market design features impact infrastructure investment decisions by merchant entities? How can these market design aspects best address the interests of both buyers and sellers? How do buyer-side mitigation measures affect investment? Should the NYISO capacity market provide a longer revenue certainty period (e.g., 3, 5, or 10 years)? Does the existing NYISO capacity market appropriately incent investment as compared with three-year forward market designs in other capacity markets (e.g., PJM, ISO–NE)? Are longterm bilateral contracts a feasible alternative procurement mechanism for New York (e.g., California model)? b. Are changes to NYISO’s capacity market necessary to better ensure resource performance during peak demand conditions (summer or winter)? c. Why are Reliability Support Services (RSS) needed? What is the effect of RSS agreements on the ability of the NYISO capacity market to efficiently meet the intended goal of incentivizing investment in resources and infrastructure? Are there other market and infrastructure impacts of the use of RSS agreements? d. How does NYISO coordinate its planning processes and its capacity market? Are there possible improvements in the coordination efforts? E:\FR\FM\24OCN1.SGM 24OCN1
