market support

We work extensively in the Irish market, providing market modelling and analysis to investors, generation owners and governments.

Our Irish modelling framework has been specifically developed to represent the Irish market in detail, including the ISEM reforms. This includes:

  • Stochastic modelling to capture the challenges and opportunities presented in a market with one of the highest penetration of wind generation in the world;
  • Detailed modelling of the Interconnector flows with GB. The GB and Irish markets are simulated in parallel to capture the correlations in demand and intermittent generation;
  • Integration of the ISEM capacity remuneration mechanism;
  • Detailed modelling of the ISEM balancing market;
  • The DS3 regime for ancillary services; and
  • Locational constraints
