nyiso_header_presentation

Electricity markets now reward flexibility throughout North America, including NYISO. This should be taken into account in investment analysis. By choosing the most flexible technology for new-build power plants, the owner maximizes returns.

According to a value analysis by Wärtsilä, a 200 MW reciprocating engine power plant offers 21.5% equity IRR for plant owners in NYISO. For the gas turbine options the IRR is 11.6-15.7%. Fast-reacting engine power plants simply generate more revenue in the day-ahead, real-time and ancillary services markets. In a nutshell: the fastest machines make the most money.
