IPA’s market modelling experience provides expertise in the development and operation of market simulations, used to support and inform investors seeking to enter new markets as well as governments and regulators seeking to liberalise, restructure or reform existing markets. IPA has produced specialist models for market operations around the world and continuous development has kept us at the forefront of modelling the full complexity of future energy markets.
ECLIPSETM (Emissions Constraints and Policy Interactions in Power System Economics) is our proprietary market modelling framework, which has been adapted for use in a number of different jurisdictions ranging from single buyer to fully liberalised market structures. ECLIPSETM uses a deterministic linear programming approach which has been specifically designed to model the fundamental economics of the power and desalinated water industry, allowing for the complex interactions between the various economic, political, environmental and regulatory drivers which influence long-term market development.
IPA develops bespoke discounted cash flow models to assess oil, gas and LNG projects to evaluate economic return margins over various sensitivity and price forecast scenarios.
