We assist our clients in understanding RTO capacity market rules and interconnection issues.
Gabel Associates also provides RTO reporting and advocacy services for numerous clients, documenting committee meetings and energy policy discussions at PJM. Specifically, Gabel Associates participates in various PJM committees and working groups including the Members Committee, Electricity Market Committee, Market Implementation Committee, and the Reliability Committee. These groups are where emerging issues, business and market rules are debated and decided. We provide timely and detailed analysis of the implications of pending policy decisions for our clients' businesses and energy initiatives. We use our place on these committees and working groups to advocate for the interests of our clients throughout the policy and tariff development process.
