Details

The impacts of Winter Storm Uri are certain to be felt in ERCOT for years to come. The blackout had devastating impacts on customers and many retailers, created massive winners and losers among wholesale market participants, and triggered a reformation of PUCT and ERCOT governance, as well as ongoing reexamination of market rules in an effort to improve reliability and resiliency. In a grid expected to see not only ongoing load growth but the introduction of enormous amounts of solar, wind and storage, how can reliability best be increased? And how will the implementation of policy changes affect the ability of strategic decisionmakers to identify and capture the most profitable opportunities in ERCOT?
