Texas Data Transport Working Group
The Texas Data Transport Working Group (TDTWG), reporting to the Retail Market Subcommittee (RMS), creates and maintains data transport implementation guides for the Texas retail electric market. The group is instrumental in assisting market participants and ERCOT to resolve data transport issues. The TDTWG is responsible to monitor the retail market metrics reported to the PUCT by ERCOT as well as the maintenance and monitoring of the Retail Market IT Services Service Level Agreement (SLA).
The TDTWG helps test and implement each new data transport or a new version of existing transport, and it may analyze a data transport to make sure that it is secure and reliable for the retail market. TDTWG also works to ensure that Texas market requirements are included in North American Energy Standards electronic delivery mechanisms (EDM) specifications.
