London Economics International LLC has participated in the birth and development of competitive electricity markets worldwide. Our market design experience dates back to the inception of the UK Pool, and encompasses the development of markets such as Victoria (Australia), California (US), and Alberta (Canada). Today, we apply this accumulated knowledge to provide asset valuation, market design, price forecasting, and strategic advisory services to private investors, financial institutions, market entities, and regulators.
In the US alone, we have served as advisors in divestiture related engagements with an aggregate bid value of over $10 billion. Our strategy practice has helped traditional investor-owned utilities in the creation of competitive gencos, assessment of the establishment of independent transcos, and valuation of synergies with associated businesses. Market design achievements include use of game theoretic techniques to assess bidding strategy and creation of sophisticated contracting structures to mitigate market power.
