​Commitment costs and default energy bid enhancements

Through this initiative the ISO will evaluate the following two topics: (1) whether commitment proxy costs, generated bids, and default energy bids allow scheduling coordinators to accurately reflect and recover their generators’ unit-specific marginal costs; and (2) whether changes to the economic bidding of commitment costs and associated market power mitigation methodology could increase market benefits when bidding under competitive market dynamics.
