New York, NY, May. 26 2021 — S&P Global Market Intelligence today introduced its power purchase agreements dataset, titled Electric Quarterly Reports (EQR). EQR provides detailed data on power transactions throughout the U.S. combining insights sourced from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and S&P Global Market Intelligence’s proprietary and extensive companies and power plant database. The new EQR data enables market participants to streamline their research and data on energy buyers and sellers, including assessing the pricing trends of clean energy from a transactional perspective.
Available on S&P Global Market Intelligence’s flagship desktop platform, these new insights provide details on bulk power transactions and outlines the parties involved, deal prices and duration of the contracts including terms, volumes, rates and location. Market participants will be able to perform analysis on investment opportunities, evaluate price differences between regions and determine the need to build new assets.
“EQR provides our clients with broader new insights into how energy revenues and renewable power purchase agreement pricing are flowing through the country,” said Yash Pandey, Senior Director of Commodities at S&P Global Market Intelligence. “As the market is continually looking for new data to aid in their evaluation and assessment of the energy markets, EQR enables a unique perspective into how these transactions are trending and help our clients make informed decisions.”
In addition, the new EQR dataset will allow users to:
- Assess trends of clean energy transactions to gain a better understanding of pricing from various types of energy generation over time and across regions.
- Conduct due diligence on contracts, transactions, and counterparty risk on target utilities and plants for M&A, strategic partnerships, and synergies.
- Forecast and benchmark the potential revenue of power plants for strategic planning and peer benchmarking for investment opportunities.
- Track potential revenue lost due to contract expiration or plant retirements on a year-over-year basis.
- Explore and examine active contracts based on the number and volume of transactions for indicators on contract renewal and expiration.
