THE ENERGIZER – VOLUME 105

By: Buck B. EndemannMolly K. BarkerMatthew P. ClarkNathan C. HoweNatalie J. ReidMaeve C. TibbettsDavid Wang

There is a lot of buzz around clean technology, distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids, and other technological innovations in the renewable energy and clean transport industries and how these developments can contribute to solving longstanding environmental justice issues. As these innovations develop, energy markets will undergo substantial changes to which consumers and industry participants alike will need to adapt and leverage. Every other week, K&L Gates’ The Energizer will highlight emerging issues or stories relating to the use of DERs, energy storage, emerging technologies, hydrogen, and other innovations driving the energy industry forward.

  • Department of Energy Announces Funding for Solar Manufacturing and Recycling Innovation Projects
  • Oneida Nation Reservation Receives Federal Grant for Renewable Energy
  • GKN Hydrogen and SoCalGas Collaborate with U.S. Department of Energy on Green Hydrogen Storage

Lessons To Be Learned from FERC’s Investigation of a New Power Project’s Participation in the New England Capacity Market

By: Ruta K. SkucasKimberly B. FrankJennifer L. Mersing

On 28 June 2022, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order approving a Stipulation and Consent Agreement stemming from an enforcement investigation with Salem Harbor Power Development, LP (Salem Harbor or DevCo) in Docket No. IN18-18. Around a week prior to FERC issuing its Order, grid operator ISO New England, Inc. (ISO-NE) issued a notice to the market regarding the forthcoming settlement, then issued a second statement shortly thereafter. FERC’s Order, and any related forthcoming settlements, illustrate the consequence of failing to exercise the diligence necessary to ensure the accuracy of information reported by a market participant to an independent system operator/regional transmission organization (ISO/RTO), and sends a strong signal regarding the amount of discretion that ISO/RTO staff may exercise in implementing the market rules of its organization’s tariff.
