For the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), we evaluated the benefits of its proposal to unbundle ancillary services, enable broader participation by load resources and new technologies, and tune its procurement amounts to system conditions. We worked with ERCOT staff to assess each ancillary service and how generation, load resources, and new technologies could participate. We also directed their simulation of the market using PLEXOS, and evaluated other benefits outside of the model.
