EBOOK: “How Markets Support Climate & Policy Goals,” Details Path to Grid of the Future

July 21, 2021

Our latest eBook, How Markets Support Climate & Policy Goals, details the role our competitive energy, capacity and ancillary markets play in delivering the grid of the future and our role helping New York meet its goals of a zero-emission energy grid.

The 10-page book points out the tremendous reduction in greenhouse gases and other emissions in the past 20 years since New York ISO-managed competitive markets launched. These markets align investment signals with system needs, support grid reliability, and drive the infrastructure investment needed to satisfy the CLCPA.

The eBook details how markets help:

  • Attract green resources
  • Reward the flexibility and responsiveness required to offset intermittent resources
  • Help ensure reliability

It also illustrates how our first-in-nation market rules help facilitate the growth of green resources such as energy storage resources, distributed energy resources, and hybrid energy storage.
