Energy and Environmental Economic Modeling and Analytical Capabilities

Many of the most important policy, regulatory, and strategic questions related to today's uncertain energy markets and environmental policy changes can only be addressed through rigorous analysis of possible economic impacts and market outcomes. NERA's proprietary economic models help clients prepare for, adapt to, and seize opportunities from changes in energy markets and environmental policies. Our analytical and modeling tools are used to support expert testimony, understand the consequences of proposed policies and regulations, assist clients in investment decision-making, provide input into valuation of assets, and provide insight into other complex matters.
 
NERA has an extensive collection of proprietary models that have been developed to assist in the economic evaluation of climate change and other environmental policies. In addition, NERA’s staff are experienced users of various economic models developed by government agencies and specialized firms. NERA experts are skilled in the application of many tools and techniques of economic analysis, such as econometrics, decision analysis, linear programming, Monte Carlo uncertainty analysis, and risk management (including in the context of climate change and emissions trading).
