Forwards Forecasting:

EnAppSys has produced market curves out to 2040, that give day ahead, within day and system prices at half-hourly resolution.  These are contained within a view that dynamically shifts the resolution plotted.  When developing our forward view of the European energy market our analysis uses potential scenarios for renewable generation and models its effect on the fuel mix.  We overlay this with our model of market behaviour, to give a pragmatic view of the future.  We consider this approach gives far more realistic outcomes, compared to those based wholly on theoretical econometric algorithms.

These curves can be accessed via the EnAppSys energy Insight Platform.

We also produce bespoke forecast curves for evaluating potential investment opportunities which have proven very useful to our clients.

Far Horizon:

The unprecedented change that the European energy industry has undergone over the last few years shows little sign of abating.  In fact, for carbon 'net zero' to be achieved by 2050 (or before) the pace of change needs to increase significantly.  Transmission system operators encapsulate the drivers of change in European electricity markets in terms of; decentralisation, decarbonisation and digitisation.  To aid our clients' strategic long-term decision making, we provide analysis and forward scenario studies.  A selection of projects we have worked on with our clients are listed below:

  • Strategic vision to 2050, to enable long-term investment in generation assets

  • The future of embedded generation

  • Effects of the reduction in inertia as thermal units retire from the system

  • Changes to Balancing Services requirements as the system decarbonises

  • EV's and V2G: How does this affect the investment criteria for storage projects

  • Fuel mix scenario planning

  • Renewables: Evolution or Revolution (for the GB National Grid's steady progression v's two degrees), implications on the storage and peaking plant markets
