New electricity information website launched

Transpower announced today that its subsidiary company Energy Market Services (EMS) has launched a new informative electricity site that allows greater accessibility to NZ electricity market data.

em6 live is a free service and is a further enhancement to EMS’s current electricity information suite which includes the subscriber-based em6.

EMS Chief Executive Kevin Duckworth said that the new website is a collaborative effort between Transpower and EMS to help make electricity data more user-friendly and understandable for those who are interested in how the current electricity market is operating.

“Throughout the development of the site, designers had the end user in mind.

This has helped to ensure that the information presented is clear and easy to understand."

“The site includes a graphical snapshot of the current generation being used in real time throughout New Zealand, regional electricity demand and regional spot prices. The information will also be updated every half hour so that it remains current."

“em6 live is a significant step towards providing a wide range of users the ability to view and understand electricity industry information. We hope users enjoy it."

EMS offers a range of other services to the electricity market, including data administration, demand response, meter data management and professional services such as GIS.
