The areas of the suite are described below.
The main console combines real-time, historical, and forecast data on one screen. Data updates automatically, and alerts are generated both visually as well as audio using a computer speech-synthesis. It is also a gateway into much more detailed information and live reports.
The supply mix report consolidates historical generation supply, market demand, interchange transactions and market price graphs on one screen. Detailed generation, price, fuel, and import/export data are shown to the right of the main charts and is updated dynamically by moving the mouse over the charts and clicking on any hour of interest.
The jumbo market status screen provides a large view of key metrics of the Ontario Electricity Market, including the current price and demand information. It is ideal to showcase the market status on a dedicated computer or large screen so it can be viewed quickly by several people.
The intertie trader provides real-time and historical analysis of the electricity interconnections between Ontario and its neighbours. There are nine screens that include both historical, real-time, and forecast prices for energy flows on these interfaces. Interface prices and flows (where available) include published information from external markets. There are several screens dedicated to Ontario’s Transmission Rights Auction (TRA) where participants bid to own Transmission Rights across specific paths for a period and receive compensation when congestion occurs on those paths. A full history of the paths and TRA rights are provided, including historical congestion data, auction pricing data, and return on investment analysis.
Dashboard reports are provided to Market Dashboard subscribers. These reports are a collection of useful data that allows subscribers to execute complex data queries directly against the Market Dashboard data warehouse. Using the Market Dashboard query express engine, users can view the data online or export the data into Microsoft Excel.
The zone map continuously shows market prices and location prices (shadow prices) across Ontario. Market and shadow prices are generated by the Ontario IESO’s Dispatch Optimization and Scheduler (DSO) that is updated automatically on the display as new data generated.
