B326 – ICAP Reference System

The ICAP Reference System will automate the ICAP market mitigation measures currently performed manually by the Market Mitigation and Analysis Group.  Utilizing a web-based data portal, the MPs will be able to upload and review their market mitigation measure, while the NYISO will use this data portal to review the MP’s inputs.  This new system will increase transparency, provide a structure for open dialogue and potentially assist in avoiding disputes.
