Roundtable Meetings

Houston - March 2020 (date to be confirmed)
WPTF is planning a Roundtable in Houston in March as a follow up on the discussion we held in Seattle concerning the need for a new paradigm for regional Resource Adequacy (RA). The gist of past RA markets has been to just ‘count MWs’ to meet RA needs. However, in a future generation mix dominated by near zero marginal cost units, there will need to be a regional RA model that compensates resources based on capabilities. While the need for such an RA design is most acute in the Pacific NW, it is likely to be needed in other regions. Meeting details and an agenda are upcoming.
