In 2015, the ISO formed a transitional committee, comprised of stakeholders from across the West, to develop a governance structure for the Western Energy Imbalance Market (WEIM). The WEIM’s growth has resulted in additional economic, reliability, and environmental benefits. In response to a continuously evolving energy market and expanding footprint, the ISO Board of Governors and WEIM Governing Body created a Governance Review Committee to develop and propose refinements to the WEIM’s governance. Formalized in the Transitional Committee and Governance Review Committee charters, western stakeholders created and continue to improve the governance framework that established the Governing Body, the
Body of State Regulators, and the
Regional Issues Forum.
