Market Working Group

Market Working Group

The Market Working Group (MWG) develops and oversees policies and procedures related to the Integrated Marketplace protocols that define SPP’s wholesale markets, including energy and operating reserve, congestion management, congestion hedging, demand response and market power mitigation. The MWG proposes changes to the SPP Open Access Transmission Tariff and other governing documents to implement suggested market changes.

The MWG is comprised of representatives from SPP’s membership. The MWG scope in the governing documents folder provides more information about this group and its work.
