CA ISO opens the door to DER participation in wholesale markets

The California Independent System Operator Corp.'s board approved technical refinements that would streamline the participation of energy storage and distributed energy resources in the wholesale market, according to a Sept. 5 news release. The measures include enhanced bidding options that would help better adapt to limitations of resources, such as demand response types that cannot respond instantly to real-time dispatch. Batteries would be allowed to absorb power when there is an oversupply and feed them back to the distribution system when needed. Interconnection improvements would provide connection options for new resources and allow for storage resources to continue to provide grid services.
