PJM recently released the results of the 2020/2021 BRA auction which was the first auction to fully implement the Capacity Performance (CP) market structure. The goal of CP is to increase reliability by having year-round obligations and introducing penalties for non-performance. It was initially expected that prices would increase from this rule change when it was introduced in 2014, but this has thus far not been realized. The results of this auction could drive significant changes for builds and retirements in the PJM market.
