Medium-term Power Forecast

Weather-driven Fundamental Data, Fuels, Exchange and Available Capacities.

A comprehensive fundamental forecast

Our medium-term forecast covers all traded power-products ranging from time horizons of two weeks up to three years ahead. We base our forecasts on market intelligence and a fundamental model simulating detailed generator dispatch on an hourly level. This enables us to forecast the price formation and power flow between interlinked power markets.

For strategic decision-making

We update our medium-term forecasts every morning, giving you a daily updated market overview. We provide detailed quantitative analyses of how price, dispatch, and exchange are affected by recent changes in fuel and/or carbon costs, the latest weather forecasts and available capacities. Our analyses enable you to identify the most relevant fundamental price-drivers given the current market situation.

Model setup

Our continental medium-term power forecasts were developed with the integrated energy simulation environment PLEXOS®, which features unit commitment and economic dispatch of comprehensive thermal-based power systems. For the Nord Pool market, we use the EMPS model system.
