QR Trading Optimization for electric Co-ops, DUs & RES providers
  • Optimization of the 5-min BCQ nomination across your sourcing portfolio versus buy-sell in WESM (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao) 5-min market to minimize energy sourcing cost.
  • In short, the optimization engine reshuffles the nomination of all your bilateral BCQ contracts to suppliers, versus buy-sell in WESM spot market, subject to all constraints, e.g., hourly, daily, monthly capacity, max, min targets, etc, to determine the daily nomination strategy yielding the lowest overall energy cost. This constant reshuffling is performed every 30 minutes, 24/7 to deliver updated nominations that match WESM price changes:
    • For periods when our AI WESM (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao) LPM price forecasts are lower than some BCQ cost, the optimizer widens the imbalance and buys less from the BCQ and more from WESM 5-min spot market to fulfill the demand load.
    • For periods when our AI WESM (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao) LPM price forecasts are higher than some BCQ cost, the optimizer tightens the imbalance and buys from the BCQ to the maximum allowed, to fulfil the demand load, and sells any excess energy to WESM 5-min spot market for profit.
  • In DA BCQ nomination trading the solution is executed around 10:00 am, to produce optimal 5-min nomination for each BCQ for tomorrow.
  • Nomination dashboard allows end-to-end management of the 5-min nominations and electronic submission of your BCQ contracts to each supplier, both for intraday and DA trading.
