Results of three stakeholder-requested economic studies on wind development

In addition to the engineering studies conducted regularly to ensure long-term reliability of the region’s bulk power system, ISO New England conducts up to three economic studies annually at the request of regional stakeholders. Each study analyzes the economic impacts of a power system scenario developed by those requesting the study. Each study’s scope of work and assumptions of future conditions are largely defined by the requestors, with input from both the Planning Advisory Committee and ISO New England.

Mixing things up: ISO-NE offers additional way to view real-time fuel mix with new graph in ISO Express

Current pie chart shows fuel mix by percentage; new graph shows fuel mix by megawatt

One of the most popular features of ISO-NE’s website is the fuel-mix pie chart found on the homepage and in ISO Express. The chart is a snapshot of the fuels New England's power plants are currently using to generate electricity, by percentage. The ISO has now made a complementary graph available in ISO Express that shows the fuels New England's power plants are using to generate electricity throughout the course of a day, by megawatt. Side-by-side, the fuel mix chart and graph provide not only an instant read of the current fuels in use but also how that usage evolves over the course of the day.

ISO-NE incorporates wind-powered resources into real-time dispatch with Do Not Exceed Dispatch Project

The change helps improve price formation in the markets and marks an important milestone in ISO New England’s efforts to efficiently integrate renewable resources

On May 25, the region’s wind-powered resources and intermittent hydro resources began taking electronic dispatch instructions from ISO New England for the first time and became eligible to set real-time prices in the wholesale electricity marketplace. These changes were effected by the Do Not Exceed (DNE) Dispatch Project in which the ISO worked with stakeholders to implement a modified electronic dispatch method for these intermittent resources. The new system is expected to improve price formation in the marketplace and system use of low-cost renewable resources in areas with limited transmission capacity by:
