Urgent: No
Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) revises the calculation of credit exposure for Counter-Parties that represent neither Load nor generation by adjusting the M1 factor for forward exposure risk to reflect the fact that these Counter-Parties do not have Mass Transition risk, reducing the 40-day "look back" period for certain exposure components to 20 days and specifying a Minimum Current Exposure (MCE) for these Counter-Parties that is also used as the Initial Estimated Liability.
Reason: The existing Protocol methodology for computing exposure does not reflect the market risk profile of trading Counter-Parties that represent neither Load nor generation. In addition, under existing calculations, in certain circumstances Counter-Parties with neither Load nor generation may not have an MCE while continuing to operate in the Market.
