I-SEM Energy Trading Simulator
ISEM Market Simulator Explained
The new I-SEM market Operates 24/7, with Continuous Intra-Day Market for each half-hour which is similar to the GB BETTA power and Continental Markets. Trading ceases one-hour ahead of each half-hour of delivery with 'Gate Closure'. From Gate Closure to end of the half-hour, 'trading' takes place with TSOs (Eirgrid/SONI) through the Balancing Mechanism.
The player will manage a portfolio of generation to mirror the new markets and allow the player to optimise their portfolio with the balancing market.
In each scenario, participants get the opportunity to make bids and offers for power in the day-ahead auction for each plant in their generation portfolio, taking account of the physical parameters of the plants.
