More data on LMPs, fuel mix, and forecasts, plus new functionality
ISO New England continues to enhance its website and data portal, ISO Express, with the release of several reports and site features in January 2015. Notable changes are described below (customizable features of ISO Express, along with some charts and maps, require registration). Market participants and other stakeholders can expect even more improvements over time based on user feedback and website analyses.
Several upgrades can be found in the Pricing Reports and Operations Reports sections
Real-time pricing data
Use the Selectable Final Real-Time Hourly LMPs Report in ISO Express to study final hourly locational marginal prices (LMPs) for the past seven years. The data is selectable by pnode, Hub, load zone, or interface, and date and hour, and is broken into the various cost components: energy, congestion, and losses. Currently, individual reports are generated for each selected day. However, upcoming improvements will include the ability to aggregate data from multiple days into a single report.
Fuel mix data
With the new Dispatch Fuel Mix Report, the ISO provides a snapshot of the amount of electricity expected to be produced by different fuel types, as forecasted by dispatch software on the operating day.

Archived power system forecasts
Historical data from two of the ISO’s most-visited daily reports are back by popular demand:
- Visit the Morning Report Archive for past versions of the Morning Report since 2005. This report provides an estimate of expected capacity available to meet peak-hour electricity demand and reserve requirements.
- The Seven-Day Capacity Forecast Archive includes data since 2010. The Seven-Day Capacity Forecast provides a summary of factors affecting the power system for the next seven days, including weather, generating capacity, and peak demand.
Expanded External Interfaces Graph
Those using the External Interfaces Graph can now choose to display up to six interfaces at a time. Learn how to add and customize content in ISO Express.
