This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) outlines the Protocol changes needed to allow ERCOT to execute each year of the two-year annual Congestion Revenue Right (CRR) Auctions in separate bid and credit windows for each year to relieve market credit and improve the ability of ERCOT to efficiently execute and analyze the results.
Annual CRR Auction processes and systems are already separated in terms of credit lock, modeling, bidding and auction optimization. These changes simply separate the two annual CRR Auctions to run sequentially during the year, rather than simultaneously, to eliminate overlapping annual credit lock exposure.
Currently Year 1 and Year 2 of the annual CRR Auctions are run simultaneously. In November 2011, $1.6 billion in credit was locked for Year 1 and Year 2 of the annual CRR Auction and overlapped with the credit lock for the December monthly CRR Auction as well.
