Our clients operating in the centralized markets in North and Central America are experiencing ongoing change as market operators continue to implement new features, advanced technologies emerge, and federal regulations evolve.
The story in the western U.S. and Latin America is one of consolidating, evolving, and emerging markets. Renewables and distributed energy resources are primary catalysts. We are working with our clients to be proactive in the face of these changes, ideally to help shape them, to fully recognize the benefits of regional integration.
Even the most mature markets are experiencing significant change with the increasing prevalence of renewable generation and the operational complexities that accompany them. Of course, the passage of FERC Order 841 has significant implications for ISOs, RTOs, and anyone who operates within those regions.
The push towards creating more efficient and effective markets is both powerful and constant. Improved field technology has made higher resolution data readily available, which drives more efficient market solutions. Utilicast, with our unique historical perspective and reliable connection to the emerging technologies, serves on the leading edge with our client partners as we tackle these exciting challenges.
Our Centralized Markets practice partners with Power Marketers, Balancing Authorities, Scheduling Coordinators, Regional Transmission Organizations, and Independent System Operators to drive complex projects to successful completion.
