MISO has a simple vision: to be the most reliable and value-creating Regional Transmission Organization, or RTO. We do this by working closely with our stakeholders, whose views have informed the suite of MISO FORWARD publications published in 2019 and 2020.
Three themes emerged in our discussions with our customers: Urgency, Customer Preferences and Diversity = Value. Utilities need MISO to act now to develop transitional and transformational solutions. As customers continue to push for decarbonization goals, utilities are adopting significantly more diverse business models. Supply and demand of availability, flexibility and visibility will vary by utility. MISO’s ecosystem for exchange must accommodate this significantly increased degree of diversity and facilitate members to leverage that value.
Our multi-year action plan is driven by insights from utility integrated resource plans, investor presentations and stakeholder interviews. As you’ll see in these reports, we are confident that it will help us realize our vision of being the most reliable, value-creating RTO.
