It combines information from many data sources into a single display that is updated automatically as the source data changes:

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 is 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 for running off of a dedicated computer or large screen so the market status 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 for these interfaces. Interface prices and flows (where available) include those published from the external markets. Several screens dedicated to Ontario’s Transmission Rights Auction (TRA), where participants bid to own Transmission Rights across specific paths, for a period of time, and are compensated 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 users of the Market Dashboard service. It is a collection of useful reports that allow subscribers to execute complex data queries directly against the Dashboard data warehouse. Using the Market Dashboard Query Express engine, users can view the data online or download the data in native Microsoft Excel.
The Zone map continuously shows Market Prices and locational prices (Shadow Prices) across Ontario. Market and Shadow Prices are generated by the Ontario IESO’s Dispatch Optimization and Scheduler (DSO) and will be updated automatically on the display as new data generated.
