Topics covered by this working group include system operation and operating practices, including critical interfaces among electric, thermal and fuel systems; market design and operation; and operational forecasting.
Members of the System Operation & Market Design Working Group are encouraged to interact with one another via Groups.IO, an online discussion platform and community network. The ESIG Resource Library is also a valuable tool for those seeking information on System Operation & Market Design, as well as other topics.

Hybrids and Emerging Flexible Resources Task Force (HyFlex)
Task Force Chair: Mark Ahlstrom, President, ESIG Board of Directors
The purpose of this task force is to create a working community to develop concepts around emerging co-located, hybrid and highly flexible resources. These approaches are rapidly growing for digitally-controlled, integrated technologies such as PV solar with battery storage, but the concepts may apply broadly to combined technologies, aggregated distributed energy resources, and hierarchies of devices on both transmission and distribution systems.
The following documents are currently available:

Discussion Document: Hybrid Power Plants (Ahlstrom, Gelston, Plew, Kristov – Version 10/21/2019)
