Market System Enhancement


MISO operates one of the largest energy markets in the world, with well over 400 market participants serving 42 million people. Our world-class energy markets serve as a platform for matching the supply and demand of energy across 15 states in the MISO region.

As MISO has grown over the years, so has our market system platform. The current system has served MISO and its members well but it is approaching end-of-life. As we plan for the grid of the future, we must ensure we have a market system platform that will meet our stakeholders’ future needs while ensuring the reliability and security of the grid.

The purpose of MISO’s Market System Enhancement (MSE) multi-year program is to transform our current platform into a flexible, upgradeable and secure system that will meet those needs. It is a critical component of MISO’s ability to execute its current and future strategies and continue to deliver value to our stakeholders. The success of the program moves us closer to fulfilling our company vision of being the most reliable, value-creating RTO.
