When assessing and publishing generation availability information against system requirements, Electricity System Operator (ESO) includes an Operational Planning Margin Requirement (OPMR) above demand forecast for 2 to 13 days ahead. This OPMR is the amount of generation, in excess of demand forecast, that is required to meet Electricity System Operator’s (ESO) Reserve Requirement.
