ERCOT ISO

  • We have subject matter experts in ERCOT systems, market rules, procedures, and the stakeholder process. In the fall of 2003, the ERCOT Stakeholders began developing Protocols to implement a Nodal market. Our team has held roles at ERCOT working with ERCOT Stakeholders and internal ERCOT staff to shape the design of the ERCOT Nodal market. We also have experience with the Independent Market Monitor (IMM) support of ERCOT as they advise and monitor potential violations of the Protocols.
  • We have leveraged this experience and knowledge to work closely with the commercial trading and marketing teams to commercialize regulatory initiatives at both ERCOT and the PUCT to position the company to capitalize on them. We have also used this experience and knowledge to assist operations teams on compliance and possible changes to the protocols in the stakeholder process
