Real-time pricing (RTP) has gone live on 1 November 2022, and vSPD Online will be unable to process dates later than 1 November 2022 until such time as we get it rebuilt to work with both the new and old versions of vSPD.
Please see this Forum post for more information.

Latest vSPD jobs

vSPD-online is a browser-based implementation of our vSPD model of the Scheduling, Pricing and Dispatch (SPD) market-clearing engine used in the administration and operation of the New Zealand electricity market. vSPD-online users are able to create jobs to run the model and conduct 'what if' experiments by specifying an override. A job can be run for any number of trading periods spanning up to an entire week at a time. Outputs are available for download and further analysis when the job has finished.
