DESCRIPTION: This is an on-going project. The project provides for computer hardware and software to facilitate the following: (1) accurate accounting of energy transactions; (2) scheduling loads, energy resources, and transmission; (3) interfacing with the California Independent System Operator (CAISO); and (4) energy resource portfolio analysis and risk management. JUSTIFICATION: Pasadena~s existing energy scheduling and settlements software requires continuous upgrades due to the dynamic nature of the energy business. Activities for this project have been minimal due to repeated delays by CAISO in implementing a new market better known as CAISO Market Redesign Technology Upgrade (MRTU). The initial phase of MRTU was implemented on April 1, 2009. System requirements and functionality are now well-defined. The merger of PWP~s software providers resulted in the lack of support by the current scheduling software and lack of an interface with CAISO in the new market, resulting in manual work performed by staff. Software modifications and upgrades will continue due to evolving needs resulting from CAISO market changes. SCHEDULE: No work is scheduled for FY 2015. RELATIONSHIP TO GENERAL PLAN: This project is consistent with the Public Facilities Element of the General Plan by helping to maintain a high level of service through more efficient management of resources. HISTORY: The project was created in FY 1998, received initial funding in FY 2000, and fully funded in FY 2014.
