The Decision Support Manager provides participants with access to historical market data to support decision making. It allows users to compare the bidding behaviour of other market participants, to follow trends in system prices and to identify how to benefit from opportunities in the Balancing Mechanism (BM).
The Market Reporter module collects data from the ‘High-Grade’ Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service and downloads it to the user’s database. Using the Decision Support Module extends this to include competitor data for data analysis. The module provides all the facilities available in Market Reporter, but also supplies BM data for all BSC Parties and BM Units which are registered with the Central Registration Agent.
In summary, the Decision Support Module provides user-configurable access to trading and operational data for all market participants. It also collates key data items in a series of comparative tables and graphs to enable quick analysis of bidding behaviour, results, system prices and the underlying dynamic data of the delivering assets.
The Decision Support module supports the following activities:
This function focuses on the success of Balancing Mechanism trades, providing the user with different views of the Bid Offer Acceptances and the data underpinning the bids. Participants can view all Bid/Offers (BOs) and BOAs, within a specified settlement date range, for any BSC Parties and BM Units which are registered with the Central Registration Agent.
The user can view when Bid/Offer Acceptances (BOAs) occurred, together with the underlying data, for the defined BM Unit Sets bids. The colour-coded BOA indicators are displayed at the Settlement period level for a selected date range in the form of a matrix, so the user can quickly monitor the timing and identity of successful bids.
This function enables the user to set up groups of BM Units with distinct group names so that the data displayed in other functions can be filtered according to the defined BM Unit sets.
Grouped data enables analysis based on the relationship between the BM Units within a group. For example, data can be displayed according to transmission zones, or according to fuel type used by the BM Units.
The groups can be modified to add or remove BM Units, as required.
