As part of LCP’s Energy Analytics team, I focus on designing and developing our models of the GB electricity and gas markets.

Since joining LCP, I have led the development of key industry models, including the Dynamic Dispatch Model (DDM) for BEIS. I make sure our modelling is ahead of market developments so that our analysis continues to capture the key risks and opportunities for our clients.

With the Government committing to reach Net Zero by 2050, I have been exploring technologies which could support this transition.

Working with LCP feels like being part of a bigger team.  The collaborative approach is a breath of fresh air compared with previous advisors.

How I can help

We can help our clients with a wide range of issues from whole system modelling to individual power plant and policy impact analysis.

We provide detailed forecasts of the GB and Irish power markets, using our EnVision modelling framework. This can provide both short-term and long-term forecasts of all key system metrics, from system wide to individual assets.

Our understanding of market dynamics and modelling experience allow us to offer evidence-based recommendations on complex policy and regulatory issues that allow fully informed decision-making.
