Markets & Operations Dashboard PJM’s Markets and Operations homepage features a graphical real-time snapshot of PJM’s various operations and markets. Roll over the different sections of the image below for an explanation of each item. The page showcases real-time information about the current load, current generation fuel mix, locational marginal pricing, ancillary services reserve pricing and wind power. It also highlights if PJM goes into shortage pricing - a mechanism that accurately prices energy and reserves when reserves are short. In addition, it notes a subset of emergency procedures if they go into effect, such as Cold and Hot Weather Alerts and Maximum Emergency Generation Alerts. This shows the current PJM load in megawatts. This shows the current day’s forecasted peak load in megawatts. This shows the current locational marginal price for electricity across the overall PJM footprint. This icon will turn pink if and when PJM enters shortage pricing. PJM enters shortage pricing if PJM is unable to meet its generation reserves requirement. Prices that reflect the true state of the system approaching and during reserve shortages can enhance system reliability by attracting resources to respond to the shortage. This icon will turn pink whenever PJM calls for resources that are committed to its Capacity Performance standards and assesses how these resources respond. Learn more about PJM’s capacity market. This chart shows the real-time fuel mix of generation sources within PJM. If you hover over the different fuel sources within the chart, you can see how many megawatts of electricity are currently being produced from that source. Within the renewables slice of the pie, you can also see how many megawatts of electricity are currently being produced from each renewable resource in PJM. This chart compares the day’s forecasted, actual and current hour’s loads. If you hover over the chart, you can see how many megawatts were forecasted as well as the actual loads. The locational marginal pricing map provides a breakdown of current LMPs in each of PJM’s transmission zones. This map provides a breakdown of prices in its synchronized and non-synchronized reserves markets by region, as well as the current price for frequency regulation in PJM.
