Commercial Operations Subcommittee
The Commercial Operations Subcommittee (COPS), reporting to the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), addresses the processes through which ERCOT market data is translated into financial settlements. Commercial operations include the application of load profiles, data aggregation, data extract variances; congestion revenue rights settlements; qualified scheduling entity settlements; invoicing; and dispute resolution.
COPS helps improve commercial operations by integrating the retail variance and wholesale market settlements processes, including dispute resolution. COPS also addresses the settlements calendar; settlement-related performance metrics and tracking; market participant data needs for shadow settlements; and the market's overall needs for data extracts, delivery and presentation.
