Intermittent Renewable Resources

Intermittent Renewable Resources, or IRRs, have unique operational characteristics that set them apart from all other types of Resources. This course highlights these unique characteristics and examines the special provisions built into the ERCOT market design to accommodate IRRs. 

The overall goal is to inform IRR owners/operators of what is expected of them, and how they impact ERCOT’s Market and System Operations.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Resource Landscape in ERCOT
  • Market Provisions and Requirements for IRRs
  • IRR Forecasting
  • IRRs in Market and System Operations
  • Financial Settlements of IRRs
  • MIS Reports for IRRs

ERCOT recommends participants complete the Wholesale Markets 201 course prior to attending this class.

This course is designed for Market Participants who are new to the operation of Intermittent Renewable Resources in ERCOT. This may include personnel from new QSEs and Resource Entities or personnel from existing QSEs and Resource Entities who have moved into new roles within their companies.
