Why trying to fix mandatory capacity markets is like trying to win a game of Whack-A-Mole (Parts I & II)

In New York it’s where we’re staking our energy future.
A roadmap to ‘REV’ and its plan for restructuring.
New York aims to Reform its Energy Vision. For technology companies, it’s a dream come true.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the launch of New York’s first energy management network operations center to provide public facilities across the state with real-time data on their energy use. Dubbed the NY Energy Manager (NYEM), the center is located at the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany.
GE Energy Consulting and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) have agreed to a one-year license arrangement allowing NYPA to use GE's Multi-Area Production Simulation (MAPS) software. NYPA is expanding its current modeling capabilities to perform high-fidelity nodal analysis. GE's MAPS software allows users to assess the value of a portfolio of generating units, identifies transmission constraints that impact the economic operation of the system and analyzes the complex interaction between the generation and transmission assets on the system.

As new energy efficiency programs proliferate, regulators increasingly will seek to use the associated demand reductions to reduce capital expenditures on new transmission and distribution assets. However, forecasting the expected geographic distribution of these demand reductions within the grid and integrating this information into a utility’s capital planning process is a challenging task.
