The Energy Central Community has been discussing the symbiotic relationship between Green Buyers PPA's and their capacity exchanges as a viable solution to helping States achieve Energy Goals within the context of a wholesale market. This article from the Energy Institute at Haas offers some practical suggestions that may help resolve the problems facing New England's wholesale energy markets and State desires to acquire zero emission generating resources.

Previous attempts to engage New England State Regulators (NESCOE) and ISO New England to consider a role for Green Buyers in wholesale capacity markets has fallen on deaf ears. Perhaps this insightful piece from the Energy Institute at Hass may breath new life into solutions that leverage the powerful forces and useful contributions of Green Energy Buyers to solve New England's Energy conundrum and provide a practical solution to address climate change. An overview of the "Always on Capacity Exchange" (AOCE) wholesale capacity market concept, first introduced in 2019 on Energy Central, is available online.
