countries covered


  • The model constructs supply in each price zone based on individual plants
  • Zonal prices are found as the marginal value of energy accounting for generators' bidding strategies
  • Takes into account the cross-border transmission and interconnectors, and unit-commitment plant constraints
  • the model is run on the commercial modelling platform Plexos using data and assumptions constructed by FTI-CL Energy
