Leading analysis on Australia’s large-scale renewable energy market
Green Energy Markets provide three analytical subscription products to assist clients make better informed investment, trading and policy decisions related to the Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target and the associated market in Large-Scale Generation Certificates or LGCs:
The cornerstone of our LGC market analysis is the Renewables Report. These reports detail demand and supply for LGCs based on existing policy settings and existing and fully committed renewable energy projects. Subscription includes:
- Quarterly Reports to provide comprehensive analysis of market activity and trends, assessments of the influences affecting prices, and projections of future market activity (supply and demand)
- Monthly Snapshots to summarise market activity with the use of effectual graphs and charts, and provide news on policy and regulatory developments.
- Annual Power Station Report, which identifies all renewable power stations in Australia and certificate creation by year and fuel type
A Renewables Report subscription provides clients with an appreciation of the current state of the market but stops short of evaluating likely future changes in policy settings and the economics of future projects that might come to market in the future.
LGC Price Drivers Report
Our LGC Price Drivers Report builds upon the work in the Renewables Report but looks beyond the current state of the market to consider a potential range of future developments that could drive certificate prices.
LGC Price Path Report
The LGC Holdings Report informs subscribers about the amount of LGCs held by market participants such as power retailers and their likely future requirements to comply with the Renewable Energy Target.
