Visualize

Visualize

  • Banking using your credit card or debit card at a business or ATM

  • How you got here by airline

  • How the products you buy got to the store

  • The difference between businesses making it or failing (managing the processes)

  • The use of your cell phone or doing long distance on this trip.

    What do these have that the Wholesale electric business doesn’t?

IT for Reliability and Markets


Of note

Of Note

We have an interconnected electric system that is the most sophisticated and complex system in the world.

But we have electronic transaction systems that fall far short of the standard needed to assure a reliable, efficient and flexible use of the wholesale electric grid (perhaps we should even be embarrassed!).

IT for Reliability and Markets


What we can t do effectively

What we can’t do effectively

  • Transaction connectivity between energy markets and transmission use.

  • Transaction seamlessness within and across reliability/RTO seams.

  • Ability to effect rapid transmission loading changes for reliability within and across seams and to all stakeholders in an energy transaction.

  • Complete and accurate electronically generated information for settlement.

What are we missing

What are we missing?

Common/Open:

  • Unique definitions of everything

  • Business Process models

  • Adequate standardized data models.

  • Protocols

Where do we need connectivity

Where Do We Need Connectivity?

A continuum from cradle to grave

  • Energy

  • Buy / Sell

  • Buy

  • Sell

  • Transmission

  • Rights and Market systems

  • Obtain T rights

  • Rights tracking

  • Transmission

  • Scheduling

  • Pre-schedules

  • Same day

  • Real-Time

  • Operations

  • Manage schedules

  • DSM

  • Curtailments

  • Settlement & Billing

  • Reconciliation

  • Settlements

  • Billing & Accounting

Electronic Funds Transfer

What are the impacts

What are the impacts?

  • Watching a system fall apart with no effective ability to mitigate (8/14/03)

  • Manual data conditioning, Restricted information across seams

  • Siloed data (have to go looking)

  • Reduced market transparency and difficult market monitoring

  • Encumbered settlement and payment

  • A TLR or equvalent can’t be implemented in urgent situations.

Some history

Some History

  • About 10 years ago……..

    • We concretely discussed and envisioned cradle to grave electronic transaction management for transmitting power in 1995 as FERC 889 was developed.

  • Now

    • We’ve had much discussion but …….

    • We’ve had a couple efforts defining broad based systems but have failed to produce a product.

  • 10 years from now

    • If we want to fix this deficiency we’d better start some effective work NOW

IT for Reliability and Markets


Gotta have a plan

Gotta have a plan

  • Must have incentivized parties (business drivers) to develop open/common standards

  • Must have market demand for assimilation in Vendor products (and vendors need to help with standards).

  • Do it in a glass house with all major stakeholders somehow accounted for.

IT for Reliability and Markets


Proposed development model

Proposed Development Model

Proprietary Applications

Vendors

Market Participants

Electric Grease Consortium- Chartered and Managed by incentivized party

  • Performance driven.

  • Design with intrinsic drivers for success.

  • Develop and implement, and maintain common/open architecture and systems.

Process Management

Policy and direction

Audit & Standards Control

Others

Regulators

FERC

Standards Groups
