The EPA’s Clean Power Plan is causing many coal-fired power plants to be decommissioned. This, coupled with extreme weather conditions over the past few years, has stretched MISO’s resources, resulting in a critical need for increased capacity build out. What are the most economically efficient and reliable strategies to replace these resources? Are changes to the capacity and energy markets needed to create incentives for a wave of gas-plant builds? How will DR be handled in the future after a Court vacated FERC Order 745? What changes are contemplated to uplift payments and will they create winners and losers among existing generators and traders? Will new EPA regulations necessitate changes to strategic and operating plans? Will the approval of the $2.5 billion transmission expansion plan bringing over 1000 MW of wind generation and hydroelectric power help alleviate the problems? These changes are creating great uncertainty for market players in MISO, and only those who get it right will be able to maximize their opportunities and fulfill their responsibilities in this environment.
Infocast’s MISO Market Summit 2015 will bring policy-makers together with utility, IPP and DR executives to explore the opportunities to solve reliability and power market problems. They will assess how the need for new generation and transmission will impact the economics of new gas builds, as well as how the impacts of centralized capacity market changes will affect project economics and market operations. These key stakeholders will examine how DR might be better rewarded and utilized in the MISO, and whether additional transmission assets and intermarket trading will provide relief. Finally, financiers will provide their perspectives on investments in projects in the MISO market.
