Problem Statement/
Issue Charge First Read
Issue Catalyst An Oct. 17, 2019 FERC ruling opened a paper hearing under Section 206 of the Federal Power Act to investigate whether the “10 hour rule” for calculating the capability of Energy Storage Resources in the Capacity market is just and reasonable (FERC calls this rule the “minimum run time requirement”, however it is not related to the PJM energy market parameter called “Minimum Run Time”). PJM requested, and FERC granted, an extension of time on the initial brief in the paper hearing until March 11, 2020.
