Cutting-edge advice on energy markets

Energy markets forces

Factors influencing the ever-changing energy markets are varied and complex. They differ depending on which region, country, economy and commodity you look at. Here are some of the big forces that come to mind:

  • There is, however, a strong drive towards liberalization. In an open, deregulated energy market, the laws of supply and demand determine the price of energy. Understanding how they work is necessary if you want to be a successful energy buyer.
  • Deregulation isn’t the only transformative force changing the energy markets landscape. The current renewable energy revolution is reshaping the entire industry.
  • At the same time, production techniques such as fracking have made more natural gas and oil available to the markets.
  • On top of this, growth of LNG and its exportation abroad in the form of super-cooled natural gas is globalizing the gas markets.

Do you have a solid understanding of how these changes affect your business?

A global perspective on energy markets

Analyzing global energy markets is crucial to understanding the fluctuation of local energy prices. Most market observers are used to looking at the Middle-East, Venezuela or China to understand what’s driving the price of oil. But the analysis of natural gas or electricity markets often lacks this global perspective. The increase in LNG trading has caused gas prices to converge. If you want to know what is driving your gas price, you’ll have to look beyond your local market.

Due to a lack of interconnection and the absence of shared energy generation across borders, electricity markets are more local in nature. Nevertheless, as the pricing is largely driven by combustibles that are traded around the world, a global perspective can provide deeper insight into supply and demand fundamentals. Moreover, looking at a phenomenon like the renewable energy revolution from a global perspective can shed light on important developments in your country.

More and more countries are deregulating their energy markets. Drawing lessons from countries that have already gone through the process can help you make the right decisions in this transition phase.
