The conference will consist of panels addressing, but not limited to, the following issues of interest to the Commissioners:
1. Whether the current capacity obligation construct within PJM's market design provides for just and reasonable wholesale power prices in the PJM footprint, at levels that provide adequate assurance that necessary resources will be provided to assure reliability, or whether changes must be made to that capacity obligation construct;
2. Whether PJM's RPM proposal would provide for just and reasonable wholesale power prices in the PJM footprint, at levels that provide adequate assurance that necessary resources will be provided to assure reliability, or whether changes must be made to the proposal to meet those goals; and
3. Whether an alternative approach to RPM is necessary to ensure just and reasonable wholesale power prices in the PJM footprint.
The technical conference is intended to provide a forum through which the Commission will obtain information and develop a record on these topics. The Commission will issue a supplemental notice with information identifying panel participants and a detailed agenda prior to the conference. There will be an opportunity for parties to file comments following the technical conference.
