In January 2017, the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) released its Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) Roadmap for New York’s Wholesale Electricity Markets as a way to better meet the needs laid out in REV. The roadmap provides a clear path toward the integration of DERs into the wholesale market. As a result of the roadmap the NYISO DER Pilot Program was formed to focus on DER participation in NYISO’s energy, ancillary services, and capacity markets. The objectives of the Pilot Program will be:
- Identifying and evaluate barriers to entry of DER
- Demonstrating coordination processes and procedures between the ISO, DER
- Coordinating Entity (DCE) and the Utilities’ Distributed System Platform (DSP)
- Understanding technical capabilities and dispatchability of DER, small resources, and aggregations
- Assessing performance of DCEAs
- Evaluating the impact of integrating DER into NYISO’s various software systems
Distributed Energy Resources Participation Model
September 6, 2018 | NYISO | This site compiles regulatory and other documents related to the NYISO’s Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Participation Model, which will include the design of DER performance obligations, metering and telemetry requirements, baseline and performance measurement and verification rules, resource modeling, and the development of an understanding of how to balance the simultaneous participation of DER in retail-level programs, as well as the NYISO’s wholesale markets.
NYISO Pilot Program: Distributed Energy Resources
NYISO | This site details the NYISO’s DER Pilot Program, which is guided by the DER Roadmap with a focus on informing wholesale market design, and planning and operation for DER wholesale market integration. The site provides a program guide, application and registration forms, a program schedule, and other useful information.
