Webinar: ERCOT Contingency Reserve Service (ECRS)
January 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Featured Speaker: Pengwei Du, Supervisor of Resource Forecasting and Analysis, ERCOT
About the Webinar: As more renewable resources are interconnected to the grid, the grid reliability need is changing. Faced with these challenges, ERCOT has re-designed the ancillary service market to maintain the grid reliability. ERCOT Contingency Reserve Service (ECRS) is a new ancillary service product that has recently been introduced. For the purpose of restoring or maintaining the frequency of the ERCOT System or providing capacity for large and sustained net-load ramps, ECRS is a service that is offered utilizing capacity that can be maintained at a specific level for two straight hours. This talk will present the rationale behind the introduction of ECRS, the methodology of determining the quantities of ECRS, and the ECRS deployment scenarios.
