Markets+ Operations and Reliability Working Group

Markets+ Operations and Reliability Working Group

The Markets+ Operations and Reliability Working Group (MORWG) is responsible for reviewing and approving Markets+ policies and procedures that impact the Markets+ Balancing Authorities. The MORWG ensures the Markets+ market design does not conflict with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) standards. The MORWG provides oversight and direction for the Balancing Authority functions of the SPP Markets+ market and assigned Markets+ working groups and task forces. The MORWG provides policy recommendations to other working groups and the Markets+ Participants Executive Committee (MPEC) on the effects of current or proposed market designs on these entities’ ability to ensure reliable operations.
