Fundamental analysis and market insight from experienced energy traders

EnergyGPS product packages offer market fundamental analysis and insight from energy traders with decades of collective experience in the power and natural gas markets. When you subscribe to one of our packages, you can expect personal, in-depth coverage from someone who knows how to filter through vast quantities of data and find those actionable nuggets that illuminate what’s happening and help inform your daily outlook.

Our detailed independent research and insight helps traders identify profitable opportunities and assess risk and uncertainty. We also provide valuable coverage of larger macro trends of interest to managers and other industry professionals who may not be day to day traders themselves.

Our approach is to first collect the most complete information there is and then deliver it to you along with value-added analysis as soon as possible, every hour of the day. We start with the data. Every day we track and synthesize data from more than 150 different industry websites we monitor. We then produce graphical and written analysis with our unique take on what is happening in the larger markets.

We often discuss our market views in detail with clients so you have the opportunity to stress test ideas and positions. For example, what would happen if river flows increase in the next week? What is the next key load level that could trigger higher prices? What does the supply portfolio look like with different plant-outage assumptions? Depending on what’s happening on any given day, the potential questions are numerous. Our writing and analysis is always geared toward understanding what’s happening right now – and what’s likely to happen next.

What you can expect as an EnergyGPS customer

When you subscribe to one of the EnergyGPS product packages, you can expect to receive a steady stream of reports, written analysis, and market alerts. Paid subscribers can access all of their content on the EnergyGPS web site any time. In addition, you may opt in for notifications and receive an email the moment a report or notice is published. As with any notification, the full content of any email you receive is always available online. How you receive our content is up to you and easily customized via your user profile.

While the exact reports, analysis and EnergyGPS staff access you’ll have access to vary by package, here are the core components of what you can expect:

  • Daily Report | For most subscribers, the EnergyGPS Daily Report is the first thing they read before the trading day begins. Delivered by 5 a.m. Pacific Time in a concise, two-page format, it explains what is happening in the cash markets and, more importantly, why. This custom report is created by senior EGPS staff (not generated by a model or an algorithm) who mine volumes of data to pull out the important nuggets that will impact market prices. The report reviews key drivers in the California ISO marketplace including weather, changes in demand, unit outages, hydro production, imports and power flows. We also review fundamental drivers of the Northwest and Southwest markets, with particular attention to hydro conditions in the Pacific Northwest and load in the Desert Southwest.
  • Weekly Recap | Every weekend, this eight-page report dives deeper into the most important market drivers of the previous week. The focus typically shifts based on market conditions. When the SCE Limit is binding, we examine the supply stack within the Los Angeles basin. During outage season, understanding the impact of unit outages is the key. During the spring, the focus often turns to California and Pacific Northwest hydro.
  • Monthly Report | For each of our core product lines we provide an in-depth look at the most significant developments of the past month. Here we have more time to develop on larger themes or trends we see, and also provide some macro guidance on what to expect going forward.
  • Market Alerts and Notices | Our automated system monitors important websites and generates summary reports within seconds of data being published by the provider. Examples of these alerts include: CAISO LMP prices, CAISO market summary, CAISO transmission summary, Northwest River Forecast Center Volume Runoff forecasts, and Daily and Intra-Day Pacific Northwest Hydro summary. As with all of our content, you can elect to receive these alerts via email notifications if you wish.
  • Web site | The secure EnergyGPS web site provides easy access to dozens of reports and graphics in real-time as we scrape data and automatically update our graphics throughout the day. It is also a rich interactive environment where clients can perform complex data queries to explore questions of interest. An example of web site content: CAISO market data condensed into a graphical display of the supply stack, load, transmission flows, outages, renewable resource production, and prices. Our Northwest content focuses on all aspects of hydro production including snowpack, water supply forecasts, river-flow forecasts, historic production at 60 dams, and the proprietary EGPS hydro forecast.
  • Access to EnergyGPS staff | At the top subscription levels, you’ll have access to senior EnergyGPS staff via email, IM and phone to discuss current market conditions and your own positions.
