Industrial Information Resources Inc. introduced its new US Electric Utility Outage Schedule, a real-time, monthly analysis of upcoming electric utility generating station shutdowns. Researched and updated daily, this phone-verified approach gives users the most current information on schedule outages as well as emergency or unplanned shutdowns as they occur.
The US Electric Utility Outage Schedule enables traders to gauge future electricity shortfalls or surpluses by utility and NERC region. It identifies station outage dates and duration, as well as megawatt design and generating capacities, fuels, plant locations, and key site decision makers. The database covers nuclear, coal, natural gas, and hydro plants, including base, intermediate and peaking stations. Subscribers will gain an insider's edge on exactly when these unites will be down, for how long and how much generating capacity will be off-line.
IIR has identified 424 units, totaling 45 billion kilowatt hours, that will be going off-line in May 1998. NERC regions with the greatest kilowatt hours going offline this month are SERC (7,111,608,000 kW hours) and ECAR (10,255,934,400 kW hours).
In June, IIR will begin publishing a monthly newsletter aimed at the power marketer and trading industry. The newsletter will spotlight market changes and provide power marketers a channel for obtaining information about utilities.
