The New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) was established in 1971 as a voluntary association of market participants from the six New England States.  The Participants Committee is the principal governing body of NEPOOL, which considers and acts on all matters affecting the New England region’s wholesale electric power arrangements, either directly or by delegation. The Participants Committee is made up of six energy Sectors in which every NEPOOL Participant, together with its Related Persons, is entitled to have a member and alternate.  The six Sectors are each represented by an Officer that is selected by the Sector on an annual basis. A Committee Chairman is elected from among those Officers.  The Participants Committee meets monthly in a New England locale, typically in Boston or its environs, and has an annual Summer Meeting, typically at the end of June, at locations throughout the New England States.  

Jan 25      FERC -v- EPSA.  Supreme Court reverses DC Circuit Court of AppealsIn response to challenges of 
                the DC Circuit's decision vacating  Order 745 (Demand Response Compensation), the Supreme Court held (1) 
                that the FERC does have the authority to regulate wholesale market operators' compensation of demand 
                response bids under the Federal Power Act; and (2) the FERC's decision to compensate DR providers at LMP 
                (rather than LMP-G) is not arbitrary and capricious.  View Supreme Court decision.
