Energy Imbalance Market - Regional Issues Forum Public Interest Group and Consumer Advocate Sector Call 2/2/16




The Public Interest Groups and Consumer Advocates sector of the EIM Regional Issues Forum has scheduled a call for February 2, 2016 to discuss liaison candidates.  Since the sector's second conference call held on January 14, 2016, two sector stakeholders expressed interest in being considered for the sector liaison role.



Main Text

The governance proposal developed by the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) Transitional Committee and approved by the ISO Board of Governors in September 2015 includes a Regional Issues Forum, a venue to discuss and share opinions on issues regarding EIM and relevant topics. Each sector of the forum has been tasked with selecting two liaisons whose roles are to organize the periodic forums and facilitate input and participation from their respective sectors on the topics and content of the forums. Liaisons are intended to represent their sector as a whole to ensure a diversity of viewpoints is presented.


On January 14, 2016, the Public Interest Groups and Consumer Advocates sector of the EIM Regional Issues Forum held their second conference call to discuss the selection of liaisons for the forum. Two sector stakeholders, Cameron Yourkowski with Renewable Northwest and Fred Huette with Northwest Energy Coalition, expressed interest in being considered for the sector liaison role and have provided statements of interest to sector participants.


This sector has scheduled a call February 2, 2016 to further discuss and identify candidates.  The goal of the call is to elect its liaisons and suggest topics to be discussed at the first forum, which is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2016.
