Energy Imbalance Market Business Practice Manual
The ISO has posted a draft version of the Business Practice Manual (BPM) for the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM).
The ISO has published its first draft of the Energy Imbalance Market BPM on its website at http://www.caiso.com/Documents/BusinessPracticeManual-EnergyImbalanceMarket-Draft.pdf. The draft version is effective July 1, 2014.
The energy imbalance market is an extension of the ISO's real-time market. This BPM is a guideline for EIM participants and outlines the processes in the EIM, including references to existing business practice manuals. Many of the business practices applicable to the real-time market also apply to the energy imbalance market.
More information on the EIM initiative is available at http://www.caiso.com/informed/Pages/StakeholderProcesses/EnergyImbalanceMarket.aspx.
More information on the implementation of EIM with the fall 2014 release is available at http://www.caiso.com/informed/Pages/ReleasePlanning/Default.aspx.
