Capitalize on New Opportunities in America’s Next Clean Energy Hot Spot

The clean energy market is ready to erupt in Illinois. Backed by progressive leadership, NextGrid and the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) signal a new era for the state and open the door to significant renewable energy opportunities.
Most notably, FEJA requires investments in in-state renewable energy, approximately 4,300 MWs in solar and wind projects. Illinois ranks first in the nation for Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) and second nationally in grid modernization.
Illinois Energy Market Summit 2018 will bring policy-makers, RTO executives, utilities, municipalities and cooperatives together with the energy supply chain to provide the latest information on opportunities, uncertainties and strategies for future success in Illinois.

RTO Insider


RTO Insider™ is your eyes and ears on the organized electric markets, putting you “inside the room” at PJM Interconnection, MISO, NYISO, ISO-NE and SPP. We provide independent, objective coverage and analysis of the wholesale electric industry’s markets and policymaking, saving you time and ensuring you don’t miss the issues most important to your interests.

Features include:

  • Coverage of key RTO/ISO committee, subcommittee and task force meetings. We’ll be there when you can’t.
  • Coverage of news events impacting the industry throughout the 35 states managed by the RTOs/ISOs.
  • Coverage of state and federal regulatory (FERC, EPA) & legislative news affecting RTO/ISO stakeholders.
  • Issue Briefs: Concise summaries of major issues (e.g., Order 1000, EPA’s 111(d) rule).

What RTO Insider isn’t: We are not advocates or representatives. You can trust that our coverage will not be slanted to the interests of any member or membership sector.

What RTO Insider is: A source for both the big picture (e.g. analyses of major FERC rulings and RTO stakeholder developments) and the details (why is Manual 28 being changed and what does that mean to me?)
