    Electricity Price Forecast Solution

    ISO Nodal, Regional, Zonal, LMP and Trading Hub Price Forecast
    Individual Custom Nodal and LMP Price Forecast
    (Sub)-hourly Real-time Intraday and DA Forecast

QR Price Forecast™. Real-time short and long-term price forecasting solutions.

The cloud version is a 24/7 Cloud supercomputing analytics service. No software installation or development required. ISO and weather data are provided. Models are calibrated and executed automatically at set time intervals.

We offer (sub)-hourly price forecast: nodal, LMP, zonal and trading hub, as well as indivdual client’s nodal price. Weather data included.

We offer two price forecast models. Real-time intraday and day-ahead forecasts, going 5 days out, are executed every period, around the clock. Medium to long-term forecasts, going months and years out, are executed once a day.

Flexible Connectivity Bridge allows to automatically integrate data from world ISO markets and weather data services. No SQL and no coding. Forecast results are available through multiple reports, and can be exported manually in Excel, or automatically via our flexible API, into any desired format.

Our forecasting methodology is universal and applies to all ISOs worldwide. We continually monitor and enhance our forecasting models.

Advanced Forecast Models

State-of-the-art proprietary forecasting platform using deep level Artificial Intelligence and machine learning algorithms. Multiple curves and indicators can be used as inputs. These can be added and removed with a mouse click. Here are some typical examples:

  • Historic ISO prices, energy spot and reserves, real-time, day-ahead, sub-hourly, prior to a period quotes (in some markets). These can be nodal LMP (Locational Marginal Price), or LWAP (Load Weighted Average) zonal, hub or region prices.

  • ISO provided price and load forecasts if any, day / look ahead. Nodal, LMP, zonal, trading hub, region or system.

  • Outage and plant availability. Multiple weather data indicators.

Two Forecasting Perspectives

  • ISOs' standard nodal, LMP, trading hubs, regional or zonal prices.

  • Custom Price Forecasting. Make your own price index by creating a mixed basket of nodal, LMP, zonal, hub or region LWAP prices. Then the index is evaluated at run-time. When defining index formula, you specify min and cap values. Any value in the basket outside this range is discarded at run-time. The index can then be pointed to a price forecasting job and be trained on the index data.

Calibration Backtesting

  • Detailed MAPE error analysis is provided on back testing.

  • Input curves and indicators are ranked in order of effectiveness, so that the model can be fine tune and improved.

  • Actual data and forecast are gathered in live real-time "Data Panels" with plots, tabular display and export capability to CSV.

Additional Input Configuration

  • Rolling forward indicators, such as previous hour, yesterday same hour, last week same day and hour, yesterday 24 hour average, last week average.

  • Calendars to filter out and interpolate weekend and holiday effects.

  • Start and end date for training or calibration of the model.


  • Our technology and methodology are universal and market agnostic.

  • Model configurations and estimated parameters are visible and auditable. Results are saved individually.

  • Multiple security access levels are defined for users

  • Extensive import and export capabilities are offered.

  • Solution runs automatically at every market period.
