Must-have insights into demand

Power markets are volatile. Be prepared for the impact when strong demand hits the grid.

High levels of demand lead to "coincident peak" (CP) days, an important mechanic in several power markets across North America. Through our powerful neural network model, state-of-the-art weather data and experienced meteorologists, we correctly identify and monitor peak demand days as far as a week in advance and provide day-of and day-ahead forecast alerts. Our daily demand forecasts consistently outperform those of system operators.

Once we create a demand forecast, we assess CP risk based on previous load peaks and our short and/or long-range expectations, depending on the power market region and their CP protocol. With this methodology, we accurately predict peak demand days, keeping you prepared for when the market shifts.
