PJM's Operating Committee recommended high winter weekly reserve target values due to the inclusion of data from December 2022’s Winter Storm Elliott.
FERC Chair Willie Phillips and NERC CEO James Robb wrote in joint comments that they have "serious concerns" about Everett's retirement.
In keeping with its winter estimates from previous years, MISO said it could run into trouble in January should it experience high load or high outages.
PJM discussed the response to the July heatwaves and proposed changes to manual language around how synchronized reserves are deployed during the Operating Committee meeting.

PJM offered a series of suggestions for how it could overhaul its capacity market in the wake of widespread resource failures during last December's winter storm.
ISO-NE gave the Participants Committee a review of the past winter and a preview of the next — with and without the Everett LNG terminal.
An upcoming fuel and energy security study will examine the combined impacts of electric generation trends and extended cold snaps on NYISO system reliability.
FERC must look beyond reliability standards to boost electric industry winter readiness, says R Street Institute's Michael Giberson.
