Benchmark power curve

Our ‘Benchmark power curve’ is a comprehensive market and asset-level power price modelling service. It delivers long-term price forecasts, informed industry-leading regulatory market and policy expertise, and is supplemented with direct access to trusted practitioners and experts.

There is widespread concern about the drift between typical power price modelling and real-life market practice, and the lack of adequate explanation of why long-term price forecasts change. This is why the quarterly report includes coverage of regulatory and policy developments and descriptions of the changes to the forecast.

We use scenario-based “Central, High and Low” 20-year projections of electricity prices in Great Britain. Coverage includes baseload and peak prices at market-level to capture the difference in value between typical wholesale markets. Prices are presented in real values of the day and not at quarterly granularity.

Our forecasts are more than just snapshots based on the current market structure. Instead, they capture the rapidly changing market landscape with greater renewables, flexibility, interconnection and the growth of electric vehicles. This will give you a better understanding of how the evolution of the power market may change your business strategy.

The ‘Benchmark power curve’ forecasts are published for different technologies, fully reflecting price and value-capture based on different operating and load profiles of various types of power assets. This will enable you to develop investment decisions based on criteria, including timing and technology selection.

All our data outputs can be integrated with your financial modelling and business plan templates and our team of experts will also assist with the interpretation of results.
