Operated by Regional Transmission Organizations, and Independent System 
Operators: Notice of Workshop

    As announced in the Notice issued on June 19, 2014, the Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) directed its staff to convene 
workshops as necessary to commence a discussion with industry on 
existing market rules and operational practices affecting price 
formation issues in energy and ancillary services markets operated by 
Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) and Independent System 
Operators (ISOs). The June 19 Notice listed four areas of interest: 
uplift payments, offer price mitigation and offer price caps, scarcity 
and shortage pricing, and operator actions that affect prices. The 
first workshop, held on September 8, 2014, addressed uplift payments 
and the second workshop, scheduled for October 28, 2014, will address 
offer price mitigation and offer price caps and scarcity and shortage 
pricing. The third workshop will address technical, operational, and 
market issues related to operator actions in energy and ancillary 
services markets operated by RTOs and ISOs, and will be held on
