FERC Order No. 2222: Opening the Door to DERs in Wholesale Markets
Recorded on Thursday, November 12
In its landmark Order No. 2222, FERC requires all Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators (RTOs/ISOs) to remove barriers to wholesale market participation by aggregated distributed energy resources (DERs). This means that DERs – including distributed solar, energy storage, energy efficiency, electric vehicles, demand response, and more – will be able to bid into wholesale energy, ancillary services, and capacity markets according to their technical capabilities. While holding enormous potential for DER providers and aggregators to enter new markets with new business models, Order No. 2222 sets out numerous compliance requirements, which the RTOs/ISOs will have to decide how to meet, subject to FERC approval. The results of that process will ultimately determine the scale of this market opportunity for advanced energy businesses. This AEE webinar breaks down FERC’s Order and examines the questions that DER developers, utilities, and grid operators have to grapple with as they put Order No. 2222 into practice.
