Blog posts of '2019' 'March'

Ch, ch, change…
I was having lunch with a former colleague at FERC and took a moment to appreciate the changes in the Commission’s Northeast DC neighborhood. I can recall working there in the early 2000s and it was quite sketchy just a block or two away from FERC. This sprint, walking to lunch in the crisp Atlantic air, I took in the sight of all the new apartments and other buildings. When I passed a Gelato place across the street from a Whole Foods, I figured it was safe to say that part of DC had changed.
Power Market Choices for the West
When I began my tenure with WPTF last year, the outlook for market development in the West was bright. The CAISO had grown the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) and looked like it could even change its governance to evolve from this incremental step into a true regional market. The folks in the Mountain West were set to join SPP. The PEAK Reliability Coordinator (RC) had joined PJM to offer a credible platform for the economical implementation of a regional market. That was soooo January 2018.
