The firm has a unique understanding of the fundamental drivers of both energy and capacity markets in the different U.S. Power Markets, as well as the interaction between new build activity and retirement of inefficient assets.

The team has worked with developers, well-known power-focused financial sponsors, North American utilities and Independent Power Producers.
