As System Operator we monitor available generation capacity and potential peak demand from around six months ahead until the week ahead when we change to monitoring the market schedules up until real-time. This is because the market schedules have more accurate demand forecasts and reflect offers in the market. We provide a series of information and notifications from six months out to real-time.
The overview below describes the notices we send ahead of a potential deficit or shortfall.
(For potential shortfalls, low residuals, forecast deficits, or real-time deficits)
