EnerKnol’s Visual Primer – Electricity Markets

As the one-way electric grid evolves into an intelligent, two-way platform, ISOs and RTOs are tasked with balancing the impacts of the changing energy landscape together with public policy actions set at both federal and state levels.

These challenges are further amplified when policymakers within a single market footprint take different actions that potentially contradict each other.
