Happy birthday 2019

This week we celebrate our 2nd anniversary as Energy Quantified or simply “EQ” – a Montel company. Two years on, our service provides “all you need to be in power” for all price areas in Europe.

One year after the official launch of our first product we already serve several hundred users throughout Europe with what we believe is the most convenient and timely access to price forecasts and market-moving numbers. The feature list may demonstrate why EQ attract many users.

What EQ provides

The table shows a list of the information we provide, parted in three pillars: Weather, Fundamentals, and Prices. However, it contains lots of variables – ranging from live price forecasts, quantified REMIT messages, hydrology models, high-resolution fundamental forecasts powered by seven of the best weather models, churning out 24 updates every day.

Adding to this, almost all these variables, come in three time slots:

  1. Historical data
  2. Within the horizon of the weather forecasts
  3. Beyond the horizon of the weather forecasts

The following figure illustrates this.

Finally, factoring in that EQ provides this for all price areas in Europe and Turkey, you will realise that EQ’s service is massive.

EQ knows there is an increasing information overload. That is why convenient access, that allows you to grow your core business is paramount to us. It is fair to say:
That is our product. That is our value-added to our users.

Probably it explains EQ's rapid customer growth.

Stop bloating your database

EQ's time series database is continuously updated. That's why our users often connect their developer tools (Excel, MATLAB, R or Python) and models directly with the EQ database. For instance, our free Excel Integrator will give you access in less than 3 minutes.

The advantage of open access, self-service, and direct coupling is obvious: You enjoy uninterrupted and on-demand access to numeric market intelligence and analysis. There is no unnecessary bureaucracy between you and the information.

Do you manage a local portfolio?

We did initially not plan for it, but local forecasts have become a substantial part of our offerings. Tell us where you operate, and we will feed you everything you need in a consistent format. Be prepared for the future with forecasts on a 15-minute resolution. Check it out here or contact me.

Thank you

Our users trust in us is our motivation to continue innovating. We could not have come this far without the invaluable help and support from our fantastic colleagues at Montel and the competent weather professionals with our partner SMHI.

Just started

We started EQ with a strong desire and aim to develop features continuously. Simply because improving existing features and adding new stuff is what makes us tick. This week, for instance, we added new functionality to our REMIT system and empowered users to conveniently fetch forecasts at a shorter interval. Besides that, our pan-European hydrology project is making daily noticeable progress.

As we like to say: Numbers count.

Austrian hydropower: Extreme precipitation and flooding in week 32

Eylert Ellefsen

The hydropower situation in Austria is now at a nearly maximum resource level. Production from the reservoirs has to be increased in the coming weeks to avoid further flooding and uncontrolled production levels. So far, we haven't seen any effect on the spot market as the German renewables are the main price drivers. However, the strong Austrian hydropower will contribute to slightly lower domestic spot prices.

Eylert Ellefsen

The hydropower situation in Romania and most of Southeastern Europe improved in July after a wet June. Price differences between Austra (CWE region) and Hungary/Romania (SEE region) are significantly reduced from the start of Q2. Outlooks for August indicate that the price difference most likely will come out lower than 7 €/MWh which has been traded in the end of July.
