Power Markets and Regional Transmission Operators ( RTO / ISO)

The evolution of the central energy markets in the United States has created significant changes in the business practices necessary to survive, compete and prosper in this new environment.

Participants are faced with many new challenges and opportunities.  Those willing to wait it out, will see opportunities disappear.  Those relying on intuition run the risk of suffering significant losses.  Taking no action or precaution to manage implications of the new environment is a risky business.  Doing business as usual is not an option!

Informed decisions and calculated risk are methods to achieve success in this changing environment.

Participants must understand and be able to make the new protocols work to their advantage.  Have the ability to analyze and understand the impact on their operations and decisions related to:

         Access to transmission service

         Bidding strategies

         Impacts of congestions

         Predictive models for price

         Effective tools and procedures for data analysis
