Economic Studies

Quanta Technology uses a variety of economic planning tools (e.g., GridView, PROMOD, GE-Maps) to perform Market Power simulations to evaluate and justify transmission and generation expansion projects, asset valuation of existing and new transmission and generation assets, plant siting, and power transaction valuation.  We have developed proprietary software tools to efficiently analyze the shifting economics of generation technologies and fuels, the intermittency of renewable resources, and the behavior and effects of energy storage all of which have a profound impact on locational energy prices and resulting prices of ancillary services.

The shifting economics of generation technologies and fuels and the intermittency of renewable resources have a profound impact on the locational energy prices and the required quantifies and resulting prices of ancillary services.

Asset developers, investors, and operators seek certainty on the future revenue streams. The competitiveness of their asset is constantly changing due to new assets in the interconnection queues and the transmission development in the region.

Quanta Technology has the expertise necessary to assist regulated and unregulated electric utilities, RTOs, ISOs, financial institutions and investors to perform Market Power simulations to evaluate and justify transmission and generation expansion projects, asset valuation of existing and new transmission and generation assets, plant siting, and power transaction valuation. We use a variety of economic planning tools (e.g., GridView, PROMOD, GE-Maps) to perform these studies.

Our team has performed a wide variety of projects in both LMP-based and bi-lateral market environments. We have the experience to assess market prices for changes to the system, analyze congestion for possible remediation, perform asset valuation, provide FTR valuation, and to help clients design processes and procedures that open, transparent and appropriately assess societal benefit.
