Capacity Market forecast

The ‘Capacity Market forecast’ provides a comprehensive analysis of the Capacity Market auctions (T-4 and T-1). The quarterly report includes a detailed forecast of the clearing prices, which will allow you to better formulate your business’s bidding strategy as well as understand the values that could be achieved through this revenue stream.

Capacity Market auctions can be a valuable income stream for generators and those with demand-response assets, however, given the wide range of factors that can impact bidding behaviour and clearing prices, forecasting the results and costs of the Capacity Market can be a challenge. Cornwall Insight’s ‘Capacity Market forecast’ provides a view of short-term and long-term auction prices. Helping you adapt your strategies to ensure you get the best possible outcome.

The report is released to coincide with upcoming auctions and is updated throughout the year. It provides a longer-term view of the Capacity Market with a five-year outlook of market prospects. Long-range forecasting is critical for those looking to participate in the Capacity Market. Our report is more than just a model, it provides you with the tools to understand and forecast future revenues for your assets. The report also gives you an overview of the costs arising from the scheme, helping you effectively manage your cost base into the future.

Not only does this report forecast the upcoming Capacity Market auction clearing prices but, the regular updates inform you of changes to scheme rules as well as information on the pre-qualified and fully qualified plant. Additionally, you will receive our emerging thinking on drivers for auction prices.
