A year ago, ISO New England launched this online publication to make it easier for market participants, stakeholders, members of the media, and consumers to find news and information about the New England power system and wholesale electricity markets. We have heard very positive feedback from our audiences on this publication and are continuing our commitment to bring you up-to-date industry information by launching a Twitter page.
Industry experts, regulatory leaders, market participants, and other electricity stakeholders came together last week to talk all things energy at the “Energy Synergy: Competition and Innovation” conference in New York City on November 1.
Hurricane Irene will go down in the history books in New England. Massive flooding washed out roads and swept away bridges. High winds toppled trees and took down power lines. ISO New England and the Local Control Centers in the region, working with the owners of the region’s power system infrastructure, were in close communication before, during, and after the storm to ensure a coordinated approach to operation of the region’s power system.
Boston Globe reporter Erin Ailworth traveled to ISO New England to speak with CEO Gordon van Welie about the challenges of running the grid. The interview appeared on November 28, 2010, as the Globe's "On the Hot Seat" feature of its business section. Read Ailworth's article, He keeps energy flowing, but worries about the future, on boston.com.
From the President and CEO, Gordon van Welie
I'd like to thank you for taking the time to view ISO New England’s new online publication, ISO Newswire.
For more than a decade, the ISO provided the participants in New England’s wholesale electricity markets with technical updates and other market and bulk-power system information through the monthly publication of our newsletter, ISO News. And for the past five years, the company issued a quarterly policy and issue-oriented newsletter called ISO New England Outlook.
