EIM-BOSR Library

The Western Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) Body of State Regulators (BOSR) submitted comments to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) on the EIM Governance Issue Paper and Straw Proposal. The BOSR supports the CAISO straw proposal to incrementally add a “motivation test” to the process for determining which market changes the EIM Governing Body is assigned primary or advisory decision authority. However, the BOSR recommends that the California ISO begin to consider moving towards a simplified process that nonetheless equitably shares decisional authority between the CAISO Board of Governors and the EIM Governing Body. In addition, the BOSR provided comments on the broader EIM Governance Review regarding the timing and scope.
