As part of New York Public Service Commission Case 18-E-0130, “Matter of Energy Storage Deployment Program,” the Joint Utilities of New York (Joint Utilities) requested consulting support to help develop market design and integration concepts as input to a Joint Market Design and Integration Report.
Concentric’s engagement leader has been an active participant in all Market Design and Integration Working Group (MDIWG) meetings since the commencement of the project in 2019. We have acted as a facilitator for the Joint Utilities team members, and as a facilitator and coordinator for the Distribution sub-team of the MDIWG. Our key responsibilities include:
- The development of relevant market design efforts in different jurisdictions, including an examination of emerging flexibility markets in Great Britain and other countries.
- The development of a catalog of potential Distribution Market products and services, with key attributes to guide client identification of market designs that will create value for customers.
- The development of Entity Category Profiles and an Entity Relationship Matrix that inform market transactions.
- Collaborative design and leadership for client Subject Matter Experts.
The work is expected to continue through June 2021 with the creation of a final report from the Market Design and Integration Working Group.
