Market Monitoring

Staying current with retail energy market activity across the country is difficult. Regulated rate structures undergo perpetual change based on unpredictable outcomes of regulatory processes, while wholesale and ancillary markets continually fluctuate. To help assimilate the plethora of multifaceted regulated and market based information into sound retail energy marketing and operational decisions Intelometry has developed inMontior; a retail energy market monitoring service designed to quickly provide decision making tools in an easy to understand format.

How Does Intelometry Do It?

Intelometry’s staff has years of practical experience working in retail and wholesale energy markets. As a result, we are uniquely positioned to combine the complexities of these markets to support decision making. On the retail front, Intelometry has built a library that can easily calculate utility tariffs across most deregulated markets in North America. Intelometry provides this library as a discrete service called inTariff, and also leverages this capability to provide inMonitor.

To estimate wholesale costs of providing retail service, Intelometry has also constructed and maintains forward energy, capacity and ancillary service curves in order to capture the costs that a supplier would incur to provide service to a retail consumer. Lastly, Intelometry builds a set of common residential, commercial and industrial market segments in order to understand the economics associated with different types of customers.

How is the Service Offered?

Intelometry provides inMonitor on a turn-key subscription basis. Users can subscribe to as many utility markets as they desire and results can be provided either through Intelometry’s web-based portal or through a periodic written report. This base service utilizes Intelometry’s proprietary market segments assessed against the most likely utility tariff and a full assessment of anticipated wholesale market costs.

Where is the Service Available?

Intelometry currently provides inMonitor across most deregulated markets in the United States. Specific markets and market segments are continually being updated and expanded as market conditions change.
