The PJM is the market in which regional energy traders do their business. PJM sets locational marginal pricing (LMP) that predicts the value of the energy at the time and location it is delivered. The LMP ensures that the lowest priced energy is dispatched to meet demand. If they lowest price is not available across the grid because of transmission congestion, the pricing will vary across the grid.

For energy traders and wholesales this makes market data a critical tool in business development and profit growth.

PJM consists of Real-Time Markets and Day-Ahead Markets. The Day-Ahead Market calculates hourly pricing and demand. The Real-Time Markets calculate pricing and demand every 5 minutes.

PJM tools include:

  • Enhanced energy scheduler
