ISO-NE delays demand response integration due to FERC Order 745 uncertainty
Observers say the Supreme Court could decide this month — perhaps as soon as April 27 — whether or not it will reconsider the D.C. Circuit Court’s decision last year to vacate Order 745, which gave FERC authority over demand response in wholesale markets.
If the court takes up the case, a decision could be delayed until next summer, Argus Media reports. But if it declines to take the case, upholding the circuit court’s decision, New England ISO said demand response could participate but not receive payments for being dispatched.
