This includes nuclear, coal condense, CCGT, lake hydropower and flows in/out for all bordering countries.

In addition a wind power model and run of river model estimate price independent power generation. The power consumption estimate is a result from several models for different regions.

French power analyst team

Senior analysts Bengt Longva and Sigurd P. Lie have been responsible for Nena’s German power analysis since 2001. They have constantly revised and expanded the analysis to stay on top of structural changes in the market and in trading. As the market has moved towards higher volatility and liquidity in the short term, Nena offers a strong short term analysis for anyone exposed to short term market movements. French power was introduced as a new product from the German desk in 2014.
