These responsibilities cover reliability, grid and market operations, market development, grid planning, outage coordination, and market monitoring. After an overview of market operations, this presentation covers present operational challenges (for example, forecasting demand and renewable resource output), changes over the next 10 years, operational and market enhancements to support renewable integration, and making the complex data and market model accessible to the general audiences of electric producers and consumers.
