Capabilities and Services

Restructuring the US power industry expanded opportunities for investment in generation - and resulted in a building binge of new power plants and huge surpluses of capacity in most markets. As simple economics would indicate, surpluses of capacity have flattened electricity prices and operating margins with little relief in sight.

The merchant energy sector has experienced a severe decline in credit quality, high-profile bankruptcies, and many debt restructurings. Whether you are buying, selling, refinancing a generating asset, or operating in the current business environment, understanding the power market -- and identifying the key drivers of value and the associated risk -- is critical in determining an asset's value and setting business strategy.
