On the first of September 2017, we went to work on building a groundbreaking new analysis service for the European power markets. Our goal was to have it ready for you in one year – and here we are, having reached our first milestone.

We have turned every stone in our pursuit for new ways of doing things faster and better for you. Naturally, we’ve changed the subscription model as well.

Claim access

With Energy Quantified, you claim admission once, and enjoy access to analysis content on demand indefinite. However, when your usage clearly indicates that EQ has become a part of your operations, we get back to you and ask for a subscription fee for the information you use frequently. If you for any reason find that you do not want to subscribe, we simply limit the access to this content. We do not shut you out of EQ entirely.

The advantage is obvious. You enjoy uninterrupted and on-demand access to market intelligence and analysis, and there is no unnecessary bureaucracy. In effect, you pay for what you need in your operations.

A huge platform already

Energy Quantified now offers price forecasts, market-moving fundamentals and weather information at a breathtaking pace, with 15 minutes time resolutions and an unprecedented number of alternative forecasts – for all price areas in Europe.

We even support local forecasts: Tell us where you or your clients operate, and we will feed you long-term historical data, seasonal norms and forecasts for any location you specify. All in 15 min resolution of course.

Convenience of delivery is as important as the data itself, and it all happens within the same uniform and easy-to-use framework – saving our users time and money from the get-go.

How we got here

Surpassing our high ambitions came about with a lot of hard work and an open, investigative attitude to the opportunities offered by recent advances in data handling. And not least with invaluable help and support from our fantastic colleagues at Montel, the competent professionals with our partner SMHI, as well as the supportive feedback from hundreds of users.

We’ve only just started

EQ is all about continuous development, incremental improvements and cool new inventions. For obvious reasons, I cannot give away all our ideas,but we are happy to invite you into our power analysis laboratory, to share our ideas and test new concepts with you.

Why are we changing things? Because it’s 2018!

This April has seen a notably cold spell of weather sweep across Europe. Temperatures have been 4 or 5 degrees Celsius below normal in most areas, whilst spot prices for the past month have delivered 5-7 €/MWh higher than expected in several areas. In this blog post, we study how the Central Western European (CWE) hydropower system developed during this cold spell and compared this situation to available historical statistics.

When Germany closed down 4.8 GW hard coal plants this winter, the impact could have been severe, but the average output from German coal plants increased year-on-year due to a positive clean dark spread. That escape from a capacity squeeze will be harder to avoid next year as more capacity will closed down.
