Soren Christian provides expert economic advice across the value chain in the electricity and gas sectors in North America, the British Isles, the Middle East, and Australia. He focuses particularly on energy market design, power market modelling, and regulatory economics.

In the area of electricity market design, Mr. Christian has advised a range of private- and public-sector clients on different elements of wholesale and retail energy market design, such as capacity market design, forward market trading arrangements, retail price cap regimes, and renewables support programs.

Mr. Christian is an expert in power market modelling and the uses derived from it. He has supported a range of investors in understanding the value of their potential investments, public sector entities in understanding the value of different policy changes, and private actors in disputes. In all cases, simulation of power sector evolution is necessary for assessing values relevant to the context.

Within regulatory economics, Mr. Christian frequently supports network utility companies and regulators from around the world in rate case reviews, covering issues such as capital remuneration, cost benchmarking, and designing incentive regimes. His work has covered established liberalized markets and emerging economies undergoing privatization and restructuring.

Mr. Christian has been published in European State Aid Law Quarterly, as well as numerous NERA-branded publications.
