What is an Energy Imbalance Market?

An Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) is a proposed market that would enable greater and more efficient sharing of electrical balancing resources between BAs. Key features of an EIM include efficient use of balancing resources between participating balancing authorities, optimized use of transmission assets between balancing areas, and the ability to efficiently accommodate Variable Energy Resources (VERs) such as solar and wind resources.
