This issue tracks MISO's compliance filing for FERC Order 2222.

The integration of a high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources has potential many needs to be explored, including:

Reliability

  • Coordination with Distribution Operators for mutual reliability needs
  • Coordination of trip and ride through capabilities

Planning

  • More accurate forecast of growth by location and visibility into drivers of changing load shapes
  • Better modeling of reliability impacts are needed

Resource Adequacy

  • Participation rules
  • Measurement and verification

Markets

  • Approaches to aggregation and representation in MISO models
  • New products
  • New resource types
  • New settlement rules
  • New communication tool
