Download as PDF 30930 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 110 / Thursday, June 10, 2021 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES both short-term and long-term reforms to aspects of ISO–NE’s capacity, energy, and ancillary services markets could be needed if CASPR and the Offer Review Trigger Prices (ORTPs) are modified or eliminated. i. What, if any, are the short-term and long-term challenges of removing CASPR and the ORTPs from ISO–NE’s capacity market? What market design changes, if any, would be necessary to preserve the capacity market’s ability to ensure resource adequacy? If changes are necessary, how quickly would ISO– NE need to implement short-term changes following the removal of CASPR and ORTP? ii. What other specific modifications to ISO–NE’s capacity market rules may be necessary? For example, should capacity accreditation rules for various resource types, the shape of the capacity market demand curve, the net cost of new entry estimates, or mechanisms to ensure fuel security, among others, be revised and if so why, and how? Approximately how long would it take ISO–NE and stakeholders to develop and implement each additional needed reform? Assuming any such modifications are necessary, which should be prioritized in the short-term, and which should be pursued in the long-term? iii. Some panelists expressed concerns that ORTPs are necessary to prevent cost shifts between New England states. Please explain whether and if so, how these cost shifts would occur if CASPR and the ORTPs were eliminated. Is there a way to mitigate such an effect? Please explain. Additionally, please discuss the extent to which certain impacts are unavoidable in a regional market where participating resources are located in multiple states. 3. Long-Term Options and Centralized Procurement of Clean Energy a. What benefits would a centralized clean procurement mechanism in ISO– NE provide to the ISO–NE states and the ISO–NE markets? What would be the goals of such approaches and what are important design considerations in developing any potential market mechanism? What are the downsides of pursuing such constructs? What concerns regarding potential undue discrimination may arise from implementing such new market constructs, if any? b. What are potential challenges to developing the new market constructs Electricity Sector, Docket No. AD21–10–000 (March 16, 2021), https://www.ferc.gov/sites/default/files/ 2021-03/AD21-10-000supp.pdf. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jun 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 discussed in this panel (e.g., would interstate compacts be required)? How could those challenges be overcome? For example, New England states have policies that support different types of resources (e.g., offshore wind). Could a standard product be developed and centrally procured in ISO–NEadministered markets to meet these diverse state policy goals? Given the differences in state policies, is it possible to define products that resources could provide (e.g., zeroemission generation) and incorporate the procurement of those products into Commission-jurisdictional markets? c. Stakeholder discussions to date have focused on the Forward Clean Energy Market and Integrated Clean Capacity Market as potential frameworks. What are the key design features of these proposals? What are the advantages and disadvantages of these approaches? d. Given that many state policy goals target electricity generation (e.g., Renewable Portfolio Standards that target a percentage of electric loads), would it be more effective to develop such a construct within the energy and ancillary services markets?
