Main Text

The ISO has scheduled a stakeholder call on January 7, 2016 to discuss the revised draft final proposal for the Energy Storage and Distributed Energy Resources initiative.  The proposal is available on the ISO website at .


Enhancing the ability of transmission grid-connected storage and distribution-connected resources to participate in the ISO market is the central focus of this ISO initiative.  In this paper the ISO presents its revised draft final proposals on the topics in scope for the 2015 phase of the energy storage and distributed energy resources initiative.


The 2015 scope of the initiative, also referred to as Phase 1, comprises three topic areas:


enhancements to the ISO non-generator resources market participation model


enhancements to demand response performance measures and statistical sampling for the ISO proxy demand resource and reliability demand response resource market participation models


clarifications to rules for non-resource adequacy multiple-use applications (provision of retail, distribution and wholesale service by the same resource)


This paper also includes clarifications and revisions to the ISO proposals on topic 2, and to a lesser extent on topic 1, to incorporate stakeholder comments and further ISO considerations.  Topic 3 is unchanged.


Please submit comments on the revised draft final proposal to by close of business January 14.


A presentation will be posted on the initiative webpage at by close of business January 5.
