Please explain how states are currently involved in market design and implementation processes. How are states’ perspectives considered in these processes? How is information shared with states related to these processes? What is the appropriate role for New England states with respect to ISO–NE capacity market reforms? c.

Many New England states have established long-term policy goals and/ or statutory requirements to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase clean energy generation. Consistent with these goals, several states have instituted programs to promote the development of renewable energy resources and to retain existing zeroemitting generation resources. How do the current ISO–NE market rules affect implementation of existing or proposed state policies? If states have differing policy goals, how should these be accommodated in the ISO–NE capacity market? How do one state’s actions to shape the resource mix affect other states? Should such effects be addressed, and if so, how? e. Is ISO–NE’s existing capacity market design, including the Competitive Auctions with Sponsored Policy Resources (CASPR) framework effective in ensuring resource adequacy at just and reasonable rates? Why or why not? Is it compatible with achieving New England states’ policies? Given the small quantity of capacity cleared through the substitution auction, is CASPR achieving its goals? Is CASPR’s current design durable? Why, or why not? 2. Short-Term Options and Complementary Potential Market Changes To Accommodate State Policies in ISO–NE a. Should ISO–NE’s capacity market design, including the CASPR framework, change to better accommodate state policies? If so, how? b. As the resource mix in ISO–NE continues to evolve, what new challenges are presented? Are the needs of the evolving resource mix better addressed in the capacity market or the energy and ancillary services markets, or are changes needed in both? Please explain. c.
