AWEA Issues Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report

LCG, February 7, 2020--The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) recently released its new U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2019 Market Report. AWEA reports new wind turbine installations have added 5,476 MW of electric generating capacity during the fourth quarter, which results in 2019 installations totaling 9,143 MW. The total installations represent an increase over 2018, but the total for 2019 falls short of total annual installations for 2015 and 2016. In addition to new capacity additions, developers completed 2,500 MW of turbine repowerings for the year.

Midwest ISO Commences Commercial Operations of New, LMP-Based Market

LCG, April 4, 2005--The Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator (Midwest ISO) formally began commercial operations of its new, Day-Ahead and Real-Time electricity markets on April 1, 2005. Elements of the new market design include centralized, security-constrained unit commitment; security-constrained economic dispatch; locational marginal pricing (LMP); and a market for financial transmission rights (FTRs).

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) conditionally accepted the Midwest ISO's proposed Open Access Transmission and Energy Markets Tariff (TEMT) last August. The implementation of the new market design is another landmark following the FERC's release of Order 2000 in December 1999 and its subsequent efforts to create Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs). The Midwest ISO's new market design is based upon the FERC's Standard Market Design (SMD) and is similar to the electricity markets of the northeast, i.e., PJM, the New York ISO and ISO New England.

The Midwest ISO service territory extends from eastern Montana through the upper Midwest - including Manitoba - and south to parts of Kentucky and Missouri. With the implementation of the TEMT, the FERC's SMD, with LMP-based pricing, will generally be in use throughout the northern half of the Eastern Interconnect.
