Bidding Energy Efficiency into the PJM Capacity Market

A client interested in adding value to utility customer energy efficiency programs requested representation in applicable PUCO cases in order to persuade utilities and the Commission to bid applicable energy efficiency savings into the PJM capacity auction. Revenue from the auction decreases energy efficiency program costs to customers while providing an additional revenue stream to utilities. These efforts yielded the expectation that a percentage of applicable savings would be bid in to future PJM capacity auctions.
