White Paper | Emergent Electricity Markets: The Economic and Environmental Case for Markets Without RTOs

This new WBK White Paper argues the Emergent Market model offers more flexibility, resilience and a quicker path to a clean energy transition than the Prescribed Market model of current RTOs/ISOs. The Emergent Market has the potential to benefit customers with a less costly regulatory structure, and to potentially avoid the crises that have plagued the RTOs in recent years. While institutional design issues are always challenging given the nature of the electric system, the Emergent Market model(s) deserve solicitude from state and federal regulators.
