Unmatched real-world functionality
CongestionIQ predicts future power congestion by understanding previous events occuring on the grid. Quickly and easily analyse a default congestion forecast and subsequent bid calculation to determine the best constraints to target. Our real-time representation of the power grid helps you make quick decisions on bidding strategies.
CongestionIQ can provide quick results, accurate power flow forecasts and increased return on investment.
Designed for you
Learn how CongestionIQ can help
Traditional techniques are ill-equipped to assess the impact of constant congestion volatility and subsequent unpredictable constraints. Stay in the know with CongestionIQ's insights into line outages, constraints, pricing, and historical activity – and better understand the drivers and risks of congestion.
Optimise your hedging strategy and reduce congestion risk. Our fully integrated solution can be tailored to your specific asset locations and risk policy, giving you control of your basis risk. Hedge this risk in both the day-ahead and financial transmission rights (FTR)/congestion revenue rights (CRR) markets. Our forecasts indicate whether flows on your paths are expected to increase so you can hedge only when congestion risks are high.
Opt for a fully-hosted solution, or be in full control of your own analysis and scenario-building.
Get a new level of transparency into day-ahead and congestion revenue rights (CRR) trading.
Our tools help you to take a fundamentals-based approach to modelling forecast power flows across market constraints. Sort and identify top bid pairs to trade with our unique strength weighting, quickly analyse bid paths and perform a risk assessment of individual paths.

Rainy River gold mine project
The project is planned to be mined by a combination of open pit and underground mining methods. Open pit mining will utilise conventional truck and shovel open pit mining methods at an ore production rate of 21kt/d. Underground mining will utilise long hole open stoping methods at a full production rate of 3.2kt/d in 2026. Combined mine life is estimated at 14 years. The Rainy River mill is based on a carbon-in-pulp (CIP) leach circuit with an ore processing capacity of 9.4Mt/a. Once at peak capacity, gold production is estimated at around 289 thousand ounces per annum.
