Projects / pyaeso


The pyaeso Python package makes access to the Alberta Electric System Operator's (AESO) Energy Trading System (ETS) easier. AESO operates Alberta's deregulated electricity market and provides price, demand, and other valuable information through the publicly accessible Energy Trading System (ETS) Web site. This information is useful for economic analysis, power trading, electric system study, and electric system forecasting. The first step in using such information is to download it and parse it into useful data structures - a task performed by this library. Typically the data provided by this library will generate graphs, feed statistical methods, heuristics, and system models to usefully analyze Alberta's electric system.
