Sensitivity Schedules Proof of Concept

The ‘Sensitivity Schedules Proof of Concept (PoC)’ calculates upper and lower sensitivities of the forecast price and carbon emissions due to net load (load less wind generation) variations, indicating how sensitive prices are to changes in the forecast net load (± 1.8% for the 0.5-4 hr forecast horizons, ± 2.8% for the 4-36 hr forecast horizons).

The PoC is a low-cost sensitivity schedule prototype and will run from 10 August to 30 October. It compromises on several measures that may be required of a full solution so please exercise caution in using this information, as per the disclaimer below.
