The Energy Price Forecast

The Energy Price Forecast  is a service of the AIEE Observatory Analysis & Forecasting Center and it is a monthly forecast of the trend of energy demand and of the prices of the energy products, providing short-term forecasts, necessary for estimating the fuel costs of the electricity generation.

The Service helps to seize the opportunities arising from the liberalization of energy markets by developing a solid risk management culture.

In fact, the management of the new energy contracts represents a great challenge for operators who need specific information and adequate tools.

Particularly important is the management of the risk connected to the variability of prices, which characterizes the sector, the lack of transparency on formulas and indexing mechanisms.

The service can be personalized to meet the customer’s particular request
Customers interested in other products or energy forecasts, different to those included by the present service, can get a personalized format, to meet their specific requests (in this case the service cost will depend on the quantity and type of the information requested).
