Reports released today by the ISO/RTO Council (IRC) highlight the value that North America's Independent System Operators (ISOs) and Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) bring to the electricity markets they administer. The three reports focus on the progress of competitive markets, as well as how ISOs and RTOs help foster development of demand response and renewable energy resources.

The three reports are titled: "Progress of Organized Wholesale Electricity Markets in North America," "Harnessing the Power of Demand: How ISOs and RTOs Are Integrating Demand Response into Wholesale Electricity Markets," and "Increasing Renewable Resources: How ISOs and RTOs are Helping Meet This Public Policy Objective." The reports are available at iso-rto.org.
