Identify renewable power generation opportunities in the U.S.

As energy transition continues to grow as a focus to build back better, supported by an accelerating pace to halve U.S. emission by 2030, it is vital to stay ahead of opportunities in the increasingly competitive renewable energy market.

Our essential data on U.S. power generation and analytical tools can help you identify and evaluate renewable power generation opportunities faster and easier:

  • Track issued RFP/IRPs using our alerts and screen for power plants and projects that match the RFP criteria by locations, ownership and PPA details.
  • Access detailed contract and standardized transaction data of the Electric Quarterly Reports (EQR) from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to streamline your research on energy buyers and sellers. Our data provides details on buyers and sellers, transaction price, duration, the terms, volumes, rates, and locations associated with each contract.
  • Gain an overview of U.S. power market dynamics by comparing operational and planned renewable plants, their development status and capacity in the pipeline.
  • Access nodal pricing information of 35,000 locations to quantify historical energy revenue and understand the potential value of projects.
  • Visualize power plants on our interactive mapping to gain more context on the surrounding infrastructure and identify potential market trends for investment decisions.


Review U.S. electricity markets and price forecasts, drilled down to the hour

Understand the future of U.S. power markets and conduct valuations of fossil fuel, natural gas and renewable power plants effectively with our 20-year forward-looking electricity price forecasts and analyst insights.

Our Power Forecast solution on the Market Intelligence platform provides essential data and analytics to conduct power plant valuations efficiently with:

  • Comprehensive power forward curve projecting power, natural gas, and coal price forecasts, and supporting supply/demand data, drilled down to hourly, daily, monthly and annual power prices.
  • A customizable dashboard to efficiently monitor and analyze U.S. regional electricity pricing and fuel pricing across 28 hubs, and forecasts on capacity vs. peak demand and reserve margin for 10 regions
  • Forecast accounts for Renewable Portfolio Standards, legislative actions, and new generation and plant retirement announcements, to reflect the future of fleets per region.

Evaluate global datacenter opportunities for renewable energy generation.

Data centers have immense power requirements and provide opportunities for renewable developers to fill the gap of flat-to-declining power demand, particularly in most of the U.S. power markets. As more and more enterprises look to 'green' their infrastructure and neutralize their carbon footprints globally, Multi-Tenant Data Centre (MTDC) providers have increasingly been asked to provide options for clean/renewable energy sources within their datacenter portfolios.

Learn how our 451 Research offering and Market Intelligence energy solutions can help you identify renewable power generation opportunities for data centers globally:

  • Track where new data centers are being built, who is developing them, and their power requirements. Our global database covers 6,600+ colocation and wholesale datacenter facilities across North America, EMEA, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
  • Understand the power supply/demand dynamics in data center growth regions and evaluate opportunities for building new plants.
  • Simplify the intricacies of matching potential load required by data centers with supply from power projects via our interactive mapping. Our interactive mapping enables the overlapping of utility, transmission and infrastructure layers so that you can quickly visualize the competitive landscape by tying in names of off-takers or data center developers.
  • Obtain specific research on the corporate renewable markets, as well as data center markets to understand how technology, policy and regulation are shaping the future of data center growth for renewable projects.
  • Create custom news alerts on the elements of the datacentre market you care most about to stay informed on the latest developments.
