Federal Energy Regulators Schedule PJM Interconnection Capacity Market Forum for June

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on April 19 said it will convene a Commissioner-led forum to examine PJM Interconnection’s capacity market on June 15, 2023.

The forum will include three panels to solicit perspectives on the current state of the PJM capacity market, potential improvements, and related proposals to address resource adequacy. 

The first panel, an overview panel, will explore whether the PJM capacity market is achieving its objectives of ensuring resource adequacy at just and reasonable rates.

The second panel, a technical panel, will discuss potential market design reforms that may be needed to ensure PJM’s capacity market is achieving its objectives. 

The third panel, a roundtable with state representatives (including state Commissioners), will discuss their views and respond to the first and second panels’ discussions.

Additional detail on these topics and panels will be shared in subsequent notices.

FERC’s notice also invited individuals interested in participating as panelists to submit self-nominations by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 28, 2023 in accordance with instructions in the notice.
