The evolution of the power sector requires substantial investment. Electricity generators need to base their investment strategies on price scenarios and they need market support to operate their power plants, taking into account fuel price trends and power trading with other regions. Meanwhile, TSOs want to understand how the need to reinforce the grid will affect electricity prices. And countries that are unbundling their electrical system need independent advice to define the optimal market structure.

CESI, having supported major operators in both Italian and International electricity markets, has developed the expertise to support power sector stakeholders in:

  • Power market models and simulations: from capacity markets to day-ahead, intra-day, ancillary and real time balancing markets
  • The economic feasibility of new generation plants (e.g. hours of operation, energy remuneration) and the impact of new players or solutions (VPP, clusters of EVs, P2G)
  • Power market design
  • Grid code definition
  • Gap analysis between existing grid codes and best practice
