Wholesale Power Markets: Trading, ISOs, Pricing, and Products

Length: Two days
Prerequisites: Electric Industry Basics (seminar), Electric Industry Overview (online course), Understanding Today's Electricity Business (book), or a fundamental understanding of the electric business.

The importance of wholesale power markets continues to grow. For those who work for or provide services to an organization involved in electric markets an understanding of how these markets function is critical to success. Key areas include which services are traded, how bilateral and Independent System Operator (ISO) transactions are completed, how ISO markets operate, how bilateral and locational marginal prices (LMP) are determined, how risk is managed through physical and financial products, and how markets continue to evolve with the growth of renewable and distributed resources. Wholesale Power Markets: Trading, ISOs, Pricing, and Products explores each of these key principles in depth and can be customized to a specific ISO.
