Load Forecasts Load Forecasts represent an expectation of the demand levels in the SWIS in future Trading Intervals. By 7:30 AM on each Scheduling Day, System Management prepares a Load Forecast for the Trading Day. This load forecast is for informational purposes only. The Load Forecast:
- represents Non-Dispatchable Loads, Curtailable Loads and Interruptible Loads net of forecast Non-Scheduled Generation;
- predicts values for both MWh and MW total demand for each Trading Interval in the Trading Day;
- and is Loss Factor adjusted to the Reference Node.
Further information can be found in the Market Rules and the Market Summary Document.
The IMO publishes Load Forecasts provided to it by System Management in MWh and MW as measured at the Reference Node for each of the Trading Intervals of the Trading Day. The following table contains links to each Trading Day for which Load Forecasts are available through this website. The Load Forecasts are available for dates backwards to Market Start (21 September 2006). Click on a trading day link to see the Load Forecast for that date
