Northeast Updates on Tackling Fuel Security
PJM and ISO New England are actively engaged in discussions with stakeholders around fuel security. Each RTO/ISO has published fuel security analyses. PJM concluded that while there is no imminent threat, fuel security is an important component of reliability and resilience – especially if multiple risks come to fruition. PJM underscored the importance taking proactive measures to value fuel security attributes through competitive wholesale markets. ISO New England’s study examined a range of possible winter seasonal and system conditions and, based on the study assumptions, identified risks to reliable operations arising from fuel constraints impacting electric power generators. ISO New England is currently working with stakeholders to develop a long-term, market-based solution to energy security risks. This panel will provide reaction and perspective on energy/fuel security issues in New England and PJM.

State Policies and the Markets: How the tension is playing out in PJM, NYISO and ISO-NE
While the competitive wholesale power markets have been meeting the policy objective of reliable electric service, public policy objectives of state policymakers and regulators have been expanding and evolving. Increasingly, state policymakers have sought to advance their individual environmental and/or jobs-related policy goals through actions outside of the competitive wholesale markets, including through out-of-market, state-supported clean energy procurements for certain generation. Having been designed for reliability and least-cost dispatch, the competitive markets were not designed to achieve these evolving public policy objectives.
Recognizing the significant tension that has arisen when state public policies and federally regulated competitive markets are not adequately aligned, each of the Eastern RTOs/ISOs have undertaken or are pursuing regional efforts to address these issues. New England and PJM have developed different mechanisms in their capacity markets to accommodate state policy objectives related to the environment and jobs, while attempting to preserve competitive pricing in the markets. Separately, NYISO is engaged in efforts to help achieve, rather than accommodate, state environmental policy goals through a proposed framework to price carbon into its energy market.
This panel will discuss these different regional approaches and other important questions arising from the interaction of the competitive markets and new policy initiatives.
