London Economics Press

Your Resource for Global Energy Research

London Economics Press (LEP) is your partner in understanding the energy markets. We specialize in providing concise and meaningful overviews of key electricity markets worldwide, including wholesale electricity price forecasts. LEI performs “multi-client” forecasts for eleven regional wholesale markets across North America. The energy, and where applicable, capacity market price outlooks are updated every six months. These forecasts include an examination of recent market developments, key assumptions used in the modeling, and a 10-year wholesale electricity price and, where relevant, capacity price forecast
