What is Day-Ahead Energy?
The Day-Ahead Market clearing process produces a schedule of financially binding commitments for the purchase and/or sale of Day-Ahead Energy in advance of the operating day, based on the bid and offer data submitted to the Day-Ahead Market by Market Participants. The clearing process schedules and dispatches resources using least cost security-constrained unit commitment and dispatch software, such that sufficient generation is scheduled in each hour to serve Energy consumption, while meeting transmission security requirements. The Participant's hourly Day-Ahead Energy credits and charges are calculated by multiplying the net cleared amount of supply or consumption at a location by the LMP for that location, and then summing all locational credits and or charges for the hour. The invoice amount is the net of all hourly credits and/or charges for the billing period.
