Market Design
Energy & Ancillary Services Markets

Brattle experts have supported efforts across the globe to design energy and ancillary service markets that are competitive, economically efficient, flexible, and enable high penetrations of renewables. We have supported several balancing area consolidation initiatives throughout North America. We have helped investors understand the business case for new technologies such as utility-scale energy storage, the ways in which such technologies can participate in energy and ancillary service markets, and the enhancements needed to existing market designs in order to support these technologies. Our experts have supported system operators and regulators in designing rules to mitigate the exercise of market power in energy markets.
