- Demand for reliable price data expected to hit new high in 2023 as renewables investors and lenders seek more certainty on investment and PPA decisions
- Joint product combines futures and fundamentals to provide a consistent valuation framework for the full lifetime of renewable energy projects
Pexapark and AFRY have formally launched the ‘Daily Valuation Curve’, a new pricing data offering that will give investors and lenders greater certainty over the lifetime value of renewable energy projects.
The result of a partnership between Pexapark and AFRY, confirmed in Q4 2022, the Daily Valuation Curve seamlessly combines Pexapark’s market-based price approach, trusted by 150+ energy companies, and AFRY’s unique fundamental price curves – which have been a long-term reference point for the energy industry for over 20 years.
By providing a consistent valuation framework and distribution of price scenarios for the short and long-term it overcomes a longstanding obstacle to reliable investment and portfolio management decisions, as well as Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) pricing.
The product has been launched at a moment when demand for reliable pricing data to support renewable energy investments is at an all-time high.
Early findings from a market survey polling over 1,255 energy market participants reveal that future prices within the liquid time horizon and fundamental price curves, combined with independent market reports, represent the top three sources of data currently used by renewables investors.
Furthermore, both future prices and fundamental price curves are expected to top the list of new data services procured by renewables investors in 2023 – followed by generation forecasts, real-time data from exchanges and power networks, as well as independent market reports.
Dr. Jan Wierzba, Senior Principal, AFRY Management Consulting, said: “These recent survey findings highlight the importance to investors of combining short-term future prices accounting for current market volatility, with long-term fundamental price curves that track changes in technologies and commodities.
But these two pieces of price information are a bit like water and oil – they do not easily mix. This is where the unique ‘blending’ methodology developed for the Daily Valuation Curve will bring great benefits for new and existing assets alike.”
Luca Pedretti, COO & Co-Founder, Pexapark, said: “PPA markets have evolved dramatically over the last year. Faced with market volatility and regulatory change, renewables stakeholders are rapidly arming themselves with data, tools and systems they need to evaluate risks, close PPAs, and make confident investment and portfolio management choices.
Innovative products such as the Daily Valuation Curve, we believe, will become a standard data set required for investment decisions that drive forward the energy transition.”
The Daily Valuation Curve is now available through Pexapark’s Price Reference Platform, PexaQuote, and to users of AFRY’s Independent Market Reports.
