The Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) energy market covers electric power delivery across all or parts of 15 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Manitoba. While the opportunities for energy traders are obvious, identifying, prioritizing, understanding and then acting on the changes to this massive energy market in real time requires highly sophisticated market decision support software from Innotap.

MISO energy prices have a significant effect on a huge region of the United States. Overlaying these and other changes within the MISO energy market are the broader changes taking place through the ongoing and evolving MISO and PJM Interconnection.

It takes highly advanced software from Innotap that is capable of providing the latest data in a customizable way so that traders can minimize risks and maximize rewards with each twist and turn of the market.
