In particular, this panel will explore the extent to which panelists believe such operator actions affect the operation and revenues/costs of market participants that own generation assets and serve load. Panelists will be asked to provide specific examples, based on their experience, of operator actions that they believe have negatively impacted the price formation process. To the extent possible, panelists will be asked to discuss differences among the approaches taken by the RTOs and ISOs to incorporate otherwise un-modeled constraints into the unit commitment and economic dispatch processes. Panelists will also be asked to comment on the information that would be most helpful to them in understanding why resources are committed for reasons other than economics and how those commitments affect prices and makewhole charges. Finally, panelists will be asked for their recommendations to improve the price formation process.

These practices include, but are not limited to: Pricing run enhancements to expand the types of resources that are eligible to set the clearing price for energy; adjustments to better align the market model with the physical operation of the system; transmission constraint relaxation; ramping products and reserve products that better reflect the costs of supplemental commitments operators might make to address uncertainty. Panelists will be asked to discuss the factors that influence the ability to adopt any of the above practices and to discuss the considerations made when choosing among these practices. Panelists will also be asked to discuss other options to better reflect currently un-priced operator actions in market clearing prices.
