February 12, 2019
Excel integrator updated with retrieval of REMIT data
EQ fetch, display and now also translates all REMIT/UMM messages into numeric curves for each production unit, power flow line and demand unit with responsibility for reporting interruptions. The Excel integrator is upgraded to facilitate a convenient download of these variables. Test it with EQ’s self-service database.
February 1, 2019
Data on individual units
EQ has started to roll out a data feed on individual production units in Europe. A demo page for all French nuclear units is launched. The data is made available via our database. Data and curves for individual units are easily found looking for “@localation”. Searching for “FR” and “prod” would, e.g. display all units available for France.
January 29, 2019
Imbalance market, prices and volumes
Preparing for comprehensive coverage of the short-term markets, EQ added data feed on the imbalance market. Both prices and volumes are depicted. A forecast service on imbalance prices is the next step on this part of the market. Data is, of course, available on our self-service database.
January 28, 2019
Complete feed of REMIT messages
We have launched a complete feed of the REMIT messages. Under the section Early Access you may browse by country/your area, filter by lead time(products) and sort by message type: production, demand and exchange. Note that the messages relevant for available transfer capacity is already included in the spot price simulation and graphed with the power flow forecasts under the Spot section.
January 25, 2019
An Early Access section
EQ employs Early Access to secure relevance and swift completion of our product development. By adding a section dedicated to our projects we offer you an improved view of our product development. At launch, we show you three projects, REMIT, Production on units and information on the regulating market. As we move on these three will find its places among the regular services and information on new projects will be added. Feedback would be highly appreciated.

January 17, 2019
SPV for PL and HU
We have added SPV for Poland and Hungary. The installed capacity and SPV production in these countries is limited. That said, it is not possible to tell which MWh that moves the market. These additions follow a development pattern and ideology where becoming complete is an integrated part of our strategy. We aim to fill the database with curated historical data and historical forecasts on these two variables too. As always, the data are available in our database. Help your selves!
January 7, 2019
Day ahead schedules for some missing borders
We continue to add newly available information as a soon as it released from TSO and authorities. This time we have added day ahead schedules for 18 missing borders in central and eastern Europe. The new curves are related to these price areas: SI, IT-NORD, CZ, HU, CH HR, HU, PL and SK. As always, after a curating procedure, new data are immediately implemented in our reporting system and made available via EQ’s web and database. Welcome to help your self in our database.
January 5, 2019
Remit numbers. Flow capacity
We have started to add REMIT numbers. From now on you find Exchange Net Transfer Capacity from REMIT in our database. The REMIT capacities is also included in the spot market simulation and will soon be displayed on the spot report.
December 18, 2018
Excel integration updated
ECMWF expanded their forecasts system with two new models, a short-range deterministic and short-range ensemble model. Because of this we upgraded our service, including the drop-down functionality in our Excel Integrator.
December 12, 2018
Completed implementation of the new EC short-range models
A new short-range EC ensemble model is added and quantified. The upgrade is the last in a two-stage upgrade of the ECMWF model system. The first step was to include a 90-hour short range EC deterministic model. The added model is initiated 06 and 18. The new model has a 144-hour lead time runs on hourly resolution. At the same time the current ensemble model is updated with hourly time-step for the first 90 hours too.
December 5, 2018
New EC short term model
A new short range EC deterministic model is added and quantified. The added model is initiated 06 and 18. The new model has a 90-hour lead time runs on hourly resolution. At the same time the current deterministic model is updated with hourly time-step for the first 90 hours too. The upgrade is the first step in a two-stage upgrade of the ECMWF model system. The next step is to include a 144-hour short range EC ensemble model. We expect the upgrade to be complete in week 50.
November 26, 2018
Dedicated ensemble page
From the |outset, EQ has supported ensemble forecasting. Adding a dedicated page for ensemble forecasts, EQ makes it easier to, view, compare and assess the weather driven uncertainty linked to weather-driven fundamentals. As our users have grown accustomed, you might, of course, add or remove a wide variety of deterministic forecasts in the same view too.
November 15, 2018
Ever wondered: Which hours could rise sharply or fall into negative prices? Using our spot model system, we simulate and depict the market sensitivities for all price areas in Europe. We have aggregated the results for you too. Scroll down for the recent development, or browse to see the sensitivities in other markets.
November 7, 2018
Consumption normals with improved handling of holidays vacation is re-estimated and uploaded
November 6, 2018
New consumption data for Switzerland uploaded
The new data source will expectedly improve the forecast quality.
October 31, 2018
Supporting historical forecasts on demand
Acquiring a complete set of historical forecasts is conventionally considered to be a costly and time-consuming process. We have just removed all of the time and money wasting steps. With EQ it is like this, assuming you have claimed your EQ access: Find the variables you are looking for. 2. State the start and the stop times 3. Press enter. Instead of transferring large data sets to your system you may choose to save your search settings, and get back to our database for more information later. So far available for Wind and SPV power production. More variables to be included as we move on. Stay tuned.
October 19, 2018
Added daily weather comments for Nord Pool and Continental Europe, in cooperation with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI). The additions of daily comments complement the comments on both the four-week- and the seasonal weather forecasts available on Energy Quantified since our launch in February 2018. Several comments are issued daily: Comments for EC00, EC12, EC00 ensemble, EC12 ensemble and GFS00 are published every morning for both Scandinavia and central Europe. Comments based on the GFS06 is published later once the forecast is published.
October 16, 2018
The report yields historical info and forecasts on price differences in adjoining markets throughout Europe. Price differences are mainly defined and changed by shifts in the relative costs in power production, relative demand elasticises, available flow capacity and flow regime. All price areas are in principle interlinked. This means that say, a price change in Spain, could affect the relative price difference between Germany and Poland, although they do not share a common border with Spain. The EQ spot model system yields continuously updated forecast and convenient retrieval of historical data of price differences for all price areas. We believe the report will become a convenient source of historical info on price ratios on Europe too.
October 12, 2018
Updates schedule visualizations
With twenty or more weather forecasts being updated every day, it's hard to keep track of all the update times. With this latest visualization, visible on the top of the web app, you will always know which forecasts are being updated, which ones are the newest and when the next forecast will come.
October 3, 2018
Intra-hour SPV profiles
Using a better interpolation algorithm yielding a better profile of intra-hour distribution of photovoltaic production.
October 2, 2018
Price models taken out of BETA
Since the launch, the spot price and power flow forecast for 67 price areas has run uninterrupted for 45 days. We believe it is stable and hence take the model out of BETA. The self-learning element in the dynamic estimation of the biding curve and inclusion of more variables will push up the performance further. We will now start adding more reporting features. True to our Early Access policy your suggestions would be appreciated.
September 30, 2018
This feature in the API and Excel Integrator helps you to answer the question: What is the forecast made for n-days ahead? The functionality returns a time series like curve, making advanced benchmark extremely convenient and intuitive. The functionality is available for all forecasts.
September 28, 2018
Added historical data for nuclear production in the data base for all relevant countries in Europe.
September 8, 2018
Added more weather parameters in our database
Should be of interest for the companies who are interested in Local forecasts. Contact us for more information.
September 6, 2018
Added SPV for CH, SE and FI
Although the effect of SPV is relative small in SE and FI, it is there. And, EQ aims to add all pieces in the market-jigsaw. A big thanks to the clients who notified us about the missing SPV in FI and CH.
September 3, 2018

Reporting on spot
Included tables and more frequent updating of the price model. The plan is to within short run the model every time an incident occurs and report the cet. par effect in €/MWh.
August 18, 2018
Completed roll out of spot price model in BETA.
All price areas, synchronised with the pan European spot market, are included. IR, AT and GR will be included as soon as data are available.
August 13, 2018
Price forecasts for Nord Pool
Added price forecasts for all price areas in the Nord Pool area, including the Baltic countries.
August 11, 2018
Price forecasts for more countries
Added: Price forecasts for Germany, France, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia.
August 9, 2018
Started to roll out spot price and power flow forecast
Started to roll out simulations from our pan-European spot and power flow forecast model. The first countries out are Spain, Portugal, Italy with six price zones. Power flow forecasts and capacity are available for all 50+ areas. In the days and weeks to come, we will open publication of price forecasts for more price-areas.
July 27, 2018
Hydrology for the Nordic areas
Hydrology is an essential factor in the price formation in several power markets in Europe. Particularly for the Nord Pool area. Imbalances in the hydrological situations affects the water values. In turn, the such imbalance causes relative large price fluctuations far outside of the Nord Pool market. This is precisely the situation now where a substantial hydro deficit pushes up the power prices far beyond Nord Pool area.
July 13, 2018
Data view on the Data Search page
Energy Quantified has received an overwhelming positive feedback on our Excel integrator and API, found under our popular page: Data Search. Now we add functionality to it. Click on a curve and investigate the content, set desired data span and resolution. The idea is to facilitate data mining. Use the full power of our web page to follow the forecasts and link data into your analysis systems via our excel integrator and API.
July 11, 2018
Chat with a meteorologist
In cooperation with SMHI, Energy Quantified now provides you a meteorologist on demand. Go to any of the SMHI pages and hit the chat button in lower right corner. Try it yourself.
July 8, 2018
Archive on all of SMHI’s weather maps and comment pages
Added full archive functionality on the weather comments and map pages. Pull out forecast with different lead time and compare comment to what was delivered.
July 6, 2018
GFS precipitation with evaporation
The latest weather trends in the Nord Pool area has demonstrated the need to incorporate evaporation in the precipitation energy modelling. Evaporation is a feature we have supported from the outset with EC models. However, the GFS weather model does not support stock evaporation variables directly. Working with our colleagues in SMHI, our analysts has found an ingenious method of calculating the evaporation from the GFS output. Besides, providing a richer model, including evaporation in the GFS forecasts also makes the GFS and EC forecasts directly comparable.

Navigate to adjoining market areas
Frequently you need to view the situation in a market adjoining to the one you focus on. The update provides a one-click option. How: Energy Quantified shows a dynamically list of area links, indicating all adjoining market to the one you currently viewing. Furthermore, this neat functionality works everywhere.
June 29, 2018
Tables across the web
No analysis without interactive tables. Catching up the presentation part of our analysis we have started to add tables under “15 days”. The tables are, of course, responsive to all seven alternative forecasts and on the fly calculates shifts in forecasts and deviation to normal. Go on and take a look.
June 26, 2018
The change in navigation made it far simpler to switch back and forth between full report for a price area and drill down on individual variables. Take a look.
June 25, 2018
Report for the week ahead markets
Added an overview report for 45 days. We called it “45 days”, hinting to the lead time and resolution on the default page. Although the default resolution is daily, you may switch back and forth between weekly, daily and hourly.
June 24, 2018
Speed and functionality
Tremendous improvements in user experience due to optimizations in the overall application speed and rendering performance.
June 23, 2018
Aggregated precipitation in the Nordics
Added aggregated precipitation energy, available under Nord pool. Energy Quantified models the net precipitation, simplified as received precipitation minus evaporation, in terms of potential energy. By coincidence, the evaporation has been very high so far this summer.
June 22, 2018
Added an overview report for intraday markets, called “96 quarters”. The page shows history and forecast of 96 quarters. You may switch back and forth between 15 minutes, 30 minutes and hourly resolution for all areas in Europe and Turkey.
June 15, 2018
The archive enables you to look at forecasts and historical data for any past dates Energy Quantified has been in operation. With an easy to use calendar interface, you may pic any date, and the forecasts instances for this date will appear. Furthermore, the actuals, backcast and normal for the period prior and after the date set. This will, for instance, enable you to benchmark how well a forecast hits say 10 days out in its lead time.
June 13, 2018
Web application technical improvements
A lot of technical stuff under the hood is updated and upgraded. This enables us to meet our progress targets. Most visible is a complete redesign of the welcome page after you log on. The welcome page now gives three sections, 1. Message system, 2. How to get started and 3. Get data section where the Excel feeder and API is lifted to the front page.
June 1, 2018
Final scheduled exchange
Final scheduled exchange added to the database. Meaning, data is available via API and Excel integrator, but now yet presented on our web portal. This is an essential step in setting up the pan European spot model, due in July.
