“Wind power continues to grow as a power resource and the NYISO continues to optimize our electric system's use of renewable power,” said NYISO President and CEO Stephen G. Whitley.
NYISO market design and grid operations have contributed to New York State's leadership in wind development. Because a wind resource's ability to generate electricity depends on the force and duration of wind, its output may not always match the system's demand for electricity. The NYISO integrates wind resources through its forecasting techniques and power dispatch procedures. ■
