Scenario analysis

Explore three scenarios to understand the Nordic and European power markers. Our base scenario takes into account the most likely developments in fuels and emission prices, the future power balance, and other pertinent factors. We also present low and high scenarios, illustrating potential price variations based on long-term fuel and carbon pricing.

Data and simulation

Powered by the EMPS from SINTEF Energy Research and Plexus for Central Europe, our analysis benefits from cutting-edge modeling technology. Volue Insight has prepared and quality-checked the extensive input data, ensuring the highest level of accuracy.

The EMPS model is specially designed for analyzing larger electrical systems, particularly those with a significant hydropower component. Widely used for forecasting spot market prices, system analysis, generation scheduling, and expansion planning, the EMPS model factors in transmission constraints, hydrological variations, and uncertainty in inflow and temperature.

Simulation period

Our Nordic power price simulations cover the period from 2023 to 2050, providing a comprehensive outlook for long-term planning.

Weather scenarios

Our weather scenarios draw from the historical period of 1986-2015. These scenarios significantly impact inflow series for hydropower generation, time series for wind and solar power, and power consumption patterns.
