Capacity Markets

The Brattle Group has more than a decade of experience analyzing and designing capacity markets. Our work has focused on the aspects of market design in greatest flux, including close analysis of capacity market developments in PJM, ISO New England, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), and other international markets. Our experience in capacity market design includes designing demand curves, analyzing the cost of new entry, and designing market power mitigation frameworks. Through our in-depth work in these markets, we’ve become recognized experts in assessing the trade-offs between reliability, costs, and risks in capacity market design and what characteristics make capacity markets most successful.
