Access documents related to the Resource Capacity Accreditation (RCA) in the Forward Capacity Market (FCM) Key Project.
This major effort seeks to identify and implement methodologies that will more accurately reflect resource contributions to resource adequacy in the Forward Capacity Market. It is critical to the reliable and efficient clean-energy transition that the accreditation methodologies are updated to reflect resources’ capabilities and how those capabilities contribute to resource adequacy.
The ISO’s assessment and discussion of methodologies with stakeholders includes how Effective Load Carrying Capability (ELCC) techniques could be used in quantifying resource capacity contributions to regional resource adequacy.
RCA in the FCM is just one of several key projects at the ISO, which continuously undertakes a variety of short- and long-term projects to enhance the region's competitive wholesale electricity markets and ensure reliable operation of the power grid.
