Forecasting future power prices is a highly complex task as prices depend on drivers such as future fuel prices, energy policies and grid developments, which are all embedded in uncertainty. Nonetheless, forecasts are crucial for the strategic decision-making of market players in the energy industry.
At Ea Energy Analyses, we excel at forecasting future power prices and technology specific capture prices in European markets. We combine energy market expertise, a unique power system model and scenario analyses to deliver value beyond isolated onetime forecasts.
