Energy Policy Roundtable in the PJM Footprint #6

Presented by Raab Associates 


There is a redoubled interest in this topic due to a flurry of recent state activity in the PJM Footprint, including: 1) Illinois's new law to provide zero energy credits for existing nuclear power plants; 2) Ohio's various cases related to state financial support for existing coal and nuclear plants; 3) Ongoing state support for aggressive energy efficiency and behind the meter solar that significantly reduce demand; and 4) State rules and policies related to utility-scale wind and solar. These state policies, for better or for worse, impact the smooth functioning of competitive wholesale energy and capacity markets. Market designs will therefore likely need to evolve to accommodate these state public policy resources while maintaining the integrity of well-functioning markets. 

PJM recently initiated a new Capacity Construct/Public Policy Senior Task Force to develop recommendations on these issues by the end of the year.  Meanwhile, FERC has initiated its own two-day technical conference in early May to discuss these issues specifically in PJM, NY, and New England.
