Pathways Initiative’s Step One Proposal for Governance of a West-Wide Energy Market 

A single, unified energy market in the West is essential to unlock the clean energy resource potential of the West, enable efficient use of our infrastructure, and maintain a reliable and affordable energy system.

The West-Wide Governance Pathways Initiative is a collaborative, multi-step effort to create this connected, independently governed Western energy market, as discussed in our recent blog post and op-ed in Utility Dive.

The Coalition released a short assessment of the Pathways Initiative’s Step One proposal, which proposes an initial set of changes within the existing market and legal structures to set the stage for a new, fully-independent regional entity to oversee the West-wide energy market.
