RTO/ISO Performance Metrics

August 12, 2016 - FERC Staff Issues Report on Common Metrics for RTO/ISOs and Individual Utilities Report PDF

In 2008, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report, FERC Could Take Additional Steps to Analyze Regional Transmission Organizations’ Benefits and Performance PDF, recommending that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) develop standardized measures or metrics to track the performance of Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) operations and markets.

In the time since the release of the GAO report, FERC staff has undertaken a series of steps to develop, collect, and evaluate RTO and ISO performance metrics. FERC staff continues to collect and evaluate performance metrics under information collection FERC-922. Docket No. AD14-15-000 contains details relating to the most recent information collection.
