The NorthBridge Group - Economic and Strategic Consulting

Wholesale Market Design

Many utilities remain under pressure from conflicting regulatory and market forces to address concerns regarding transmission independence and market design. In this area of our practice, NorthBridge provides strategic and analytic support to market participants facing issues related to:

  • Locational marginal pricing
  • Locational capacity markets
  • Participant-funded transmission
  • RTO expansion and tariff design
  • RTO “Lite” alternatives

As part of these efforts, we work with our clients to understand and quantify the impacts on various stakeholders, and to communicate the benefits of superior market designs to regulators and other stakeholders.
