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.
