What is 'AQEW'?
December 17, 2020
AQEW stands for Allocated Quantity of Energy Withdrawn. Peak Hours are predicted using Ontario Demand, but are later confirmed (or changed) by AQEW data 20 days after the fact. This is important because AQEW data can retroactively shift a Peak from one hour to the next or even to another day. This is why EnPowered's 3-hour Peak windows give you a better chance of catching all 5 Peaks even after any AQEW revisions.
