Adjustment for load on the margin
- May 12: Materials posted | Stakeholder comments
Introduction and purpose
During the sub-hourly settlement consultation in 2020 market participants identified that adjustment for load on the margin (ALM) may provide value for loads and should be explored.
The AESO continues to believe there is merit in exploring ALM. The AESO would like to engage stakeholders on the implementation of ALM; and receive stakeholder feedback on the AESO’s draft recommendation. ALM would allow for the dynamic benefits of sub-hourly settlement to be realized with a much lower implementation cost, would incent load and energy storage to bid into the market, and allow for comparable treatment to generators who receive payment for suppliers on the margin.
