Forward Curve Creator

A State of the art model at an affordable price

Do you believe that a forward hourly price curve model is only affordable to the big energy companies? Not anymore! In close cooperation with Belektron from Slovenia, Maycroft now introduces the Forward Curve Creator.

With this easy to use, state-of-the-art tool now also medium and small sized energy companies can create up-to-date forward hourly price curves in minutes, without having to employ expensive modeling experts.

Standard contracts and individual needs don't always match

In most electricity markets there is a liquid market for a set of standardised contracts with certain delivery periods: monthly, quarterly and yearly. There are certain delivery structures as well: baseload en peakload. However, in the OTC and retail market many contracts often involve individual delivery structures on an hourly or finer time granularity. To price these hourly structures a forward curve on an hourly basis is required.

Therefore Maycroft has developed this essential tool that will support you to build real-time electricity forward hourly price curves. Our model is specifically suitable for every electricity supplier or trader, big or small, who delivers or deals with non-standard electricity contracts with variable (not only base-load and peak-load) delivery schedules.
