Given the way in which the pricing mechanism has changed, and our software has changed to reflect this, it’s only natural that our customers are taking a bit of time to re-familiarise themselves with the way it all works after 1st October 2021. The market certainly did not make it easy for one of our South Australian-based deSide® clients on Wednesday 13th October, who emailed into us late afternoon to ask the ‘are you sure this is correct?’ question in relation to this display:
So in answering the client directly with a simple ‘yes, the software is accurately displaying AEMO data’ response, I included this snapshot of the ‘SA Sensitivity’ widget from ez2view v9 from the 16:25 dispatch interval:
(A) About our software
Dan’s note linked above references some of our software (i.e. and the ones we specifically focused on as part of the 5MS transition).
1) Snapshots from two of them are above.
2) Frequent readers at WattClarity will be more familiar with seeing snapshots of our other products – including the NEMwatch (entry-level dashboard) and ez2view (high-end dashboard and analytical tool) products.
3) The deSide® software sits in between them, in some ways, and it’s not very often used in illustrating articles. It’s specifically used by large energy users who are spot exposed and participate in the market by a form of demand response discussed here.
(B) Discussing what was forecast (later, in ‘Part 2’)
After responding to the client’s question directly, I wondered about exploring further to understand why … and also about communicating this more broadly via WattClarity. It’s something I would more typically use ez2view to do.
Unfortunately I have run out of time this evening, so will need to come back to this one with a ‘Part 2’ as time permits….
