Webinar: Solution, or Compounding the Problem? FERC’s Order on PJM’s Minimum Offer Price Rule


Implementation of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's December 19 order will impact state renewable energy programs and new renewable resources’ participation in organized wholesale capacity markets. During the webinar, we will discuss whether the potential that FERC may adopt similar approaches in other ISO/RTO capacity markets (particularly in MISO), as well as potentially other ISO/RTO wholesale markets, including energy spot markets. We also will discuss the potential scope of what FERC considers to be a “state subsidy,” including policies in effect in states such as California, Illinois and New York. We will also consider implementation issues in setting and updating the MOPR. Finally, we will discuss the significant impact the implementation of the Rule’s policy could have on the ability of new and emerging renewable technologies, such as the battery storage, to penetrate federally-regulated electricity markets (in the form of creating a disadvantage relative to traditional generation in the auction process, concealing from capacity markets potential decreases in the cost of generation arising from such new technologies, as well as impacts upon innovation and investment in such new technologies).
