1 NV Energy Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) Presentation to ISAS
April 22, 2015 Left picture Cresent Dunes Solar – 110 MW owned by Solar Reserve. Concentrated solar power with thermal energy storage (molten salt) located near Tonopah Center picture – LV strip – Bellagio Right picture – on line

2 EIM Footprint Existing Market in CAISO PacifiCorp joined in Fall 2014
NV Energy to join in Fall 2015

3 Energy Imbalance Market Update
November 2013: Announced plan to join CAISO EIM August 2014: Received PUCN Approval Amendment to Transmission Tariff to participate in EIM August 2014 – January 2015: Stakeholder workshops and tariff comments February 2015: Finalize tariff revisions and FERC pre-filing meetings March 2015: File tariff revisions with the FERC July – September: Stakeholder Training Biweekly meetings with PUCN and BCP staff through implementation

4 Energy Imbalance Market Update Con’t.
Technical Milestones September February 2015: Model NV Energy system into the CAISO system model, designate “Participating Resources”, and develop applications and test plans April - June 2015: Testing, early connectivity, and early market simulation June – July 2015: Training Sessions – if you or your colleagues wish to receive notices, please send contact information to: September 2015: Parallel non-binding operation OCTOBER 2015: MARKET OPERATION GO-LIVE

5 EIM Advantages Increased Reliability – more tools and modeling to provide operational awareness across a larger (EIM) footprint increasing reliability Improved Renewable Integration – Helps integrate renewable resources by capturing the benefits of longitudinal / geographic diversity. Cost Savings – Energy Imbalances served from a much larger pool of least cost resources. Re- dispatched every five minutes.

6 Variable Generation penetration in the West
VERs are a growing portion of generation portfolios Increasing due to: State renewable requirements No fuel costs Environmental impacts Publicly accepted System/load geography Rooftop solar Tax credits

7 Variable Generation Integration Solar/Wind

8 Terminology Market Operator EIM Entity Participating Resource
Operates the market model, produces dispatches EIM Entity BAA that allows EIM to operate in their footprint Participating Resource Generator that bids energy into the market Non-Participating Resources Resources within the BA not submitting bids Scheduling Coordinator Interfaces with Market Operator (EESC and PRSC) Data Schedules and forecasts System model Outages Dispatch instructions RTM: Real-Time Market RTD: Real-Time Dispatch RTUC (RTPD): Real-Time Pre-Dispatch

9 EIM Process Overview EIM 15-Minute Market Economic Bids
Generation Forecast Interchange Forecast Load Forecast Outages Economic Bids

10 EIM Process Overview EIM 15-Minute Market Awarded Schedule

11 EIM Process Overview EIM 5-Minute Market Economic Bids Updates to
Generation Forecast Interchange Forecast Load Forecast Outages Economic Bids State Estimator

12 Operational Overview Expansion of CAISO’s current 5 minute market
Security Constrained Economic Dispatch (SCED) Congestion management Network model visibility and increased outage accuracy in CAISO as well as NV Energy systems Increased modeling and outage details for modeling purposes lead to increased situational awareness

13 Base Schedule data flow

14 Responsibilities: Other Load Serving Entities (LSEs) – Non-NV Energy
Forecast / Resources Base Schedules Note that currently all participating resources are NV Energy units –additional participating units are welcome. If interested please for more information.

15 Base Schedule Background
What A forward energy schedule Includes hourly forecasts of load, generation schedules, and Inter-tie schedules Why It communicates the hourly planned operation for participating resources, non-participating resources, imports, exports, and load Represents a financially binding starting point in the real-time market When Day-ahead is prior to 10:00 am ppt the day before the operating hour Real-time - 75 minutes prior to the start of the operating hour

16 Base Schedules Entity must come to the market balanced
Base Schedule (G + I = L) (feasibility check) Forecast of Generation Forecast of Interchange Forecast of Load Submitted by all customers to EIM Entity Data aggregated and validated by NV Energy Entity (NV Energy) retains all BAA responsibilities

17 Base Schedule Details An EIM base schedule is a forward looking energy schedule. It includes hourly forecasts of load, hourly generation schedules, and hourly inter-tie schedules Base schedules are used to balance load and generation in our Balancing Authority (BA) Base Schedules are also used as a baseline for settlements

18 Base Schedule Details, Con’t.
Day Ahead Market opens 7 days before the Operating Day Day Ahead Market closes at 10:00 pm ppt before the Operating Day, and used as baseline for real-time market Base schedules must be submitted for both Participating and non-participating resources Can be modified by 75 minutes before the operating hour. EIM entity then has 2 opportunities for adjustment.

19 Base Schedules, Load and Bid Range

20 Redispatch

21 Timeline leading up to Operating Hour

22 Security Events and Outages
Currently made public on OASIS Under EIM, outage forms will be completed in NV Energy’s outage management system in real-time Outages will be posted on OASIS and communicated to CAISO within 30 minutes Outages will be reflected in market results for congestion, EIM dispatches, and settlements

23 Settlements Overview Three settlement processes with the EIM
CAISO to EIM Participating Resource/Participating Intertie Settlement CAISO to EIM Entity (BA) Settlement which includes all load and nonparticipating resources and interties BA settling with all entities within their region

24 Settlements & Invoicing Timeline
