ICIS long-term power analytics

Price forecasts up to 2030, real-time insight, pre- and post-development impact analysis

Power markets are liberalising to varying degrees whilst remaining heavily interconnected. For example, a change in German fossil generation impacts Norway’s power price by several Euros even though Norway is powered by over 99% renewable sources. In comparison, the impact on Poland is marginal. You’re expected to stay on top of each new development and advise on how to react to them. However, it can be difficult to monitor changes and assess the impact of developments in a rapidly changing market.

The unique ICIS long-term power model shows where power prices in 28 European countries are heading, how they are impacted by fuel prices, capacity changes, falling renewable costs and coal phase-outs, so that you are aware of what these changes mean for your business.
