ERCOT IMM: Preliminary Data Suggests Summer Pricing Reflected Specific Conditions, Not "Flaw" In Scarcity Pricing

In comments to the Texas PUC concerning summer ERCOT market outcomes, Potomac Economics, the Independent Market Monitor (IMM) for ERCOT, said that, "Early indications of market outcomes through August are that net revenues provided by the ERCOT real-time market in 2018 will not be at a level sufficient to support new natural-gas fueled generation. Based on the preliminary and incomplete data reviewed to date, it appears that market outcomes so far during 2018 have been reflective of the specific conditions experienced rather than any flaw with the scarcity pricing mechanism."

TEAM: Focusing On Scarcity Pricing Frequency In Evaluating ERCOT Market Performance, Resource Adequacy Provides Incomplete Picture

In comments to the Texas PUC concerning ERCOT summer market performance, the Texas Energy Association for Marketers (TEAM), in responding to a specific question concerning whether scarcity pricing produced sufficient revenue to ensure resource adequacy, stated, "If the Commission decides that an examination of long-term resource adequacy in the ERCOT region -- i.e., whether the current competitive market design is able to provide the market with sufficient price signals to maintain an adequate reserve margin in ERCOT -- is appropriate, that examination should be broader than the above stated question implies. As worded, Question No. 1 is premised on a faulty presumption that scarcity pricing mechanisms are the sole means by which generators are compensated for their services. In actuality, the amount of energy purchased in real time through scarcity pricing mechanisms constitutes only a small percentage of the total amount of revenues received by owners of generation resources."
