ESAI Power LLC (ESAI) is an energy research and consulting firm, founded in 2000. While the practice was spun out of our sister firm, ESAI Energy, focused on the global petroleum markets, the power practice quickly grew from only two initial publications to the suite of current offerings.
As evidenced on our site, ESAI routinely updates and maintains our independent syndicated outlooks for the major hubs and zones in each of the Northeastern United States wholesale power markets, along with our detailed market commentary and thought leadership pieces. We publish reports focused on market dynamics and energy price forecasts by region and zone, and gas forecasts for New England, New York and the PJM pools. These reports contain varying degrees of market analysis, policy updates, insights on changes to market design, and focus sections on key issues. The suite of publications combine to form our Northeast Power Service, which we offer to our clients through annual retainer agreements. The ongoing analysis required to produce these reports, form the basis for ESAI’s understanding of the three Northeast markets and their design and direction.
Our routinely updated market outlooks in support our publications also forms the basis for our consulting or project work. ESAI forecasts and revenue projections have been used to form the basis of financial modeling for numerous generation and transmission projects currently under operation and in development. ESAI works with our clients to provide strategic and operational support, both for commercial market issues and regulatory matters. Additionally, we have provided independent market forecasts to support numerous recent transactions in each of the Northeast markets. Specific types and examples of project work are discussed in the services and products section of the website.
