Summary This paper attempts to evaluate which wholesale electricity market-structure characteristics best accommodate wind energy. Market structures are naturally dependent upon the physical and regulatory characteristics of the region they operate in. We find that open market structures with large geographic scope, along with day-ahead, hour-ahead, and sub-hourly market clearing accommodate wind integration by rewarding the maneuvering capability of conventional generators. Such markets are operated by Independent System Operators (ISOs) and Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs), which also offer many of the characteristics necessary to effectively incorporate large amounts of wind generation. Today, these regions host a disproportionately large share of the wind generation in America.
