A new level of transparency into wholesale power markets
With PowerIQ, you can optimise buying and selling strategies, identify new trading opportunities, and analyse congestion risks across multiple hubs and zones. We provide unparalleled visibility into US power markets by combining expertise from our power market analysts and meteorologists with advanced modelling technology and fundamentals-based analytics.
Our 30+ analysts give you the power market information you need when you need it. We offer a customised service that includes pricing and congestion information specific to the hubs, zones or nodes of your interest.
We use neural network models to issue wind and demand forecasts and make accurate predictions based on our industry knowledge. We also highlight exposure to energy price volatility based on supply stack health and risks to wind generation and load forecasts.
Engage in animated, daily discussions with our analysts covering strategies to increase efficiency and minimise risk, or get additional insight on congestion predictions. Available via telephone, email or instant message.
Designed for you
Learn how PowerIQ can help
PowerIQ provides day-ahead market and real-time price forecasts, allowing you to capitalise on price spreads. We compare our demand and wind generation forecasts with the ISO to determine where deviations may drive discrepancies in price, giving you an extra layer of insight.
PowerIQ reports include detailed congestion analyses. Recap reports review constraints for the previous day and identify the market conditions and transmission outages that drove each constraint.
Congestion tables are also included in the Bal-Day and Next-Day reports, where analysts provide a list of constraints most likely to bind based on power flow analysis, transmission line outages, historical precedent and in-house modeling.
Also included in these tables are drivers for each constraint, high risk hours, a forecast confidence rating, hub impacts, top sources and sinks, and more.
Graphically, qualitatively, and quantitatively, PowerIQ reports highlight the optimal times to purchase power and the associated risks to prices – both at the hourly and daily level. Daily scenario simulations with toggled wind, demand and/or gas prices further highlight sensitive time frames at hubs and load zones.
While our data can be ingested into internal models, PowerIQ reports already synthesise this information and present it with commentary delivered to your inbox before 9am Eastern Time.
We lend confidence and efficiency in a pressurised morning process. We clean the data, send an early risk and weather commentary, and provide a second set of eyes on everything from transmission outages to monitored generation ramp rates.
Our accurate analysis and forecasting provides a unique lens into policy impacts and supply and demand dynamics. Our expert analysts provide transparency into industry events that impact your day-to-day operations such as outages, congestion and constraints.

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.
