I am a consultant in the Energy Analytics team at LCP. Prior to working at LCP, I worked at National Grid ESO for over 4 years, where I specialised in medium-long term energy market forecasting in order to make recommendations to regulators and industry. Through working for the ESO, I have gained unique perspective into all elements of electricity markets and their operation.

The energy market is rapidly changing as we shift to greener generation sources. My role here at LCP is to support clients in understanding the challenges and opportunities facing these markets through the use of market knowledge and LCP’s innovative modelling.

With LCP I get a tailored approach rather than a 'house' view.

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.

Strategic advice aimed at maximising the benefits and minimising the risks associated with the Capacity Market and Contracts for Difference.

We advise on the optimal dispatch of assets within the wholesale market, forward planning of maintenance activities and valuation of commercial upgrades to plant.

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.

We combine bottom-up unit-level modelling with market and policy insights to quantify the value and understand the risk associated with any generation asset.
