California ISO board confirms Wagner as EIM advisory chair

The California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO) Board of Governors today confirmed Rebecca Wagner to chair the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) advisory committee.

Elected recently as chair by the 11-member transitional committee composed of stakeholders from across the West, Wagner is a Public Utilities of Nevada commissioner. The committee is tasked with developing for presentation to the Board, the EIM’s long-term governance structure recommendations.

The ISO EIM is a real-time market in which non-ISO power entities can participate in by buying or selling energy, which creates costs savings for all the markets participants by more effectively using resources across a wide geographic region in the West. The market will open on October 1 with its first participant, being PacifiCorp.
