How Competitive Markets Help Commercial and Industrial Buyers Meet Their Sustainability Goals, and How They Can Be Improved
A new report from the Advanced Energy Buyers Group, a business-led coalition of large energy users facilitated by AEE, explains why organized competitive wholesale markets operated by Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators (RTOs/ISOs) are foundational to many of the strategies that large energy buyers rely on to increase their use of advanced energy and meet their sustainability targets.
The report describes the massive market opportunity and explains why expanding these markets to new regions and improving the design and operation of existing RTOs/ISOs would create more opportunities for corporate advanced energy procurement.
Eight case studies outline how large energy buyers like Amazon, Apple, Etsy, General Motors, the City of Houston, Microsoft, Starbucks, Temple University and the U.S. Army pursued a range of advanced energy technology solutions provided within organized competitive wholesale markets across the country, made possible by companies like 3Degrees, Advanced Microgrid Solutions, Apex Clean Power, EnelX NA, LevelTenEnergy, NRG Energy, Stem, and utilities including Consumers Energy, Dominion Energy, and Southern California Edison. Examples of solutions outside of organized markets like Google’s solar-plus-storage project with NV Energy.
