For some years now, the European Union has been betting on the development of renewable energies to achieve emission neutrality. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this commitment was reinforced by the leading role that renewable energies will have in achieving energy independence from abroad. The webinar will explain the importance of energy market prices forecasting at the different stages of renewable energies development. For example, long-term forecasts as input in the project financing processes and short- and mid-term forecasts to operate in the spot and futures markets once the projects start operating. In addition, the webinar will analyse the evolution of the European energy markets in recent weeks and the vision of the future in the mid‑ and long‑term. Issues related to the recent regulatory changes that directly affect the electricity markets will also be addressed, such as the so-called “Iberian exception” and the consequences that the limitation of gas prices in Spain and Portugal could bring.
This webinar will also present AleaGreen, the new division of AleaSoft created at the beginning of 2022 and which is in charge of specialising in long-term prices curve forecasting services in European markets for PPA, risk management and portfolio valuation. AleaGreen intends to become a hub to connect the renewable energy sector with financial institutions and investment funds, producers and large consumers, to explore synergies and opportunities that help achieve the great purpose of having a totally clean and renewable electricity system. The AleaApp platform will be also shown and commented, which is an AleaSoft web solution where its clients can consult, visualise and analyse energy markets data.
