Description: This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) replaces and aims to achieve most of the objectives and benefits of NPRR667, Ancillary Services Redesign, (also known as Future Ancillary Services (FAS)) while minimizing the cost impact on the market, particularly loads. This NPRR enhances the current Ancillary Services as follows: 1) Incorporate the equivalency ratio between Primary Frequency Response Service (PFRS) and Fast Frequency Response Service (FFRS) into the Responsive Reserve (RRS) procurement process while maintaining a single clearing price for RRS. Substitution of PFRS for FFRS would be on 1:1 ratio; 2) Remove the 50% limit on participation of Load Resources (providing Fast Frequency Response Service Provided by Sub-group 2 Resources (FFRS2)) that exists for RRS; 3) Introduce the Fast Frequency Response Service Provided by Sub-group 1 Resources (FFRS1) product to enable new technologies as an additional Resource type that can provide RRS; 4) Rate providers of frequency response based on their past performance; and 5) Continue to use RRS to meet both Frequency Response Obligation (FRO) of North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standard BAL-003-1, Frequency Response and Frequency Bias Setting,and help restore frequency in a cost-effective, efficient manner.
Reason: Meets Strategic goals; market efficiencies/enhancements
