Technology & analytics

We combine the latest technology and analytics with our energy market expertise to help our clients forecast the GB and Irish electricity markets, and help them understand how their business will be impacted.

This ranges from providing real-time forecasts to support within day trading decisions, to forecasting a power plant’s profitability over the next 30 years under different scenarios.

How we can help

Our focus is delivering clear and reliable analysis of the energy market to our clients through the use of technology.

The first step is always to work with you to understand your needs – what are you looking to better understand? Are you looking to predict what electricity prices will be in the future? How a specific policy change will impact your asset? Which asset you should buy?

We then use our in-house models to perform our analysis. We’ve been building these models for over a decade, and they are trusted by a huge range of participants across the market, including the UK Government who use them as their main forecasting models.

We then deliver these insights in the most appropriate way for you. For traders making second by second decisions, we have a cutting edge web platform to deliver analysis and forecasts in real time. For longer term analysis, we provide clear visualisations with the ability to drill into data to help you understand how we arrive at our analysis.

We stand out by combining our energy market expertise with data analytics and the latest technology to deliver clear, reliable insights.
