ISO/RTO staff, market participants, market monitors, and electricity market design consultants convene at this annual event to discuss relevant and urgent issues of affecting the acquisition of capacity resources to support resource adequacy and the operation of capacity markets. The conference is organized to generate meaningful discussion among these different entities and advance the management of capacity resources and the performance of the markets.

Specific topics will include setting reserve margins in forward markets, accounting for external supply and out-of-market participation, impacts of bilateral contracts and subsidies on capacity market prices, the impact of renewable resources on capacity markets pricing and payments, and how increased levels of demand response will affect overall resource adequacy needs. Special attention will be paid to how emerging regulatory and market designs influence the operation and performance of capacity markets, especially as they relate to load, generator, and transmission market participants.
