Seasonal Planning


How you plan to distribute your scarce energy resources over seasons and years may have direct impact on your company’s economic growth and revenues. A hydropower-based system is directly affected by seasonal and yearly variations. Available resources and prices in the markets are heavily dependent on weather conditions and how other participants manage their resources. A cold winter may bring high prices, but if the winter is dry, the impact may result in even higher prices in the spring. A dry summer may bring high prices in the ancillary services markets, whereas a sudden shift to rainy weather sends the prices down. These shifting conditions and uncertainties require sophisticated decision support.
