Energy Policy Analysis
FTI Consulting experts have developed a unique approach to policy analysis by linking macroeconomic tools with its energy market models to assess the impact of proposed energy policy, regulatory, and legislative initiatives. This integrated approach enables us to analyze policies such as greenhouse gas cap-and-trade programs or carbon tax regimes, on the electricity sector and the U.S. economy. Our experts have presented the results of such analyses to audiences ranging from corporate executive committees and Board of Directors to state and federal legislators.
Mark-to-Market and Value at Risk (VAR)
FTI Consulting experts use market-modeling tools to monitor, manage, and optimize the energy portfolios of Fortune 100 corporations, developers, and large asset managers through value at risk (VAR) assessment. These clients face a market with more weather variation, plentiful natural gas resources, continued baseload retirements, increasing renewables and storage mandates, and growth in corporate renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs). Our extensive experience, simulating hourly day-ahead and real-time hub and nodal prices across the U.S. under various market scenarios, has provided critical insight for our clients to formulate strategies that maximize portfolio performance and manage market exposure.
Due Diligence and Valuation
FTI Consulting experts have significant experience using market modeling capabilities to provide insights to clients on buy and sell-side transactions. Our modeling tools simulate energy, capacity, REC, and fuel prices to inform the asset or corporate valuation. As such, we conduct commercial, contractual, market, and technical due diligence as well as conduct valuation for diverse energy assets. Clients have included developers, investors, utilities, and banks.
Integrated Resource Planning
FTI Consulting experts have decades of combined experience using market modeling tools to help utilities assess their long-term system needs and address new challenges and risks. Recent market trends – such as the increasing complexity of the grid, penetration of behind-the-meter resources, increasing intermittent resources, and retirement of nuclear and coal generators – pose unique challenges that test cost constraints and system reliability. With its integrated suite of market modeling tools, our experts help clients formulate strategies that best achieve objectives of reliability, resiliency, sustainability, and financial viability.
