Increasing Efficiency through Improved Software

A page from the Strategic Plan on Improved Software The Commission is identifying opportunities to enhance operational efficiency in jurisdictional markets by encouraging public utilities, particularly RTOs and ISOs, to consider the deployment of new modeling software for their market operations. By improving efficiency in the use of computational methods and identifying ways in which the operation of utility assets can be optimized, the Commission will enhance operational efficiency to the benefit of all public utility customers. In addition, the Commission will consider implementation of rules and practices developed by individual RTOs and ISOs, as well as the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).

This initiative is established in the Commission's FY 2009-2014 Strategic Plan PDF
