npower Releases Latest Energy Market Update
Released on: October 31, 2011, 3:29 pm
npower has launched its latest energy market update, as part
of its ongoing drive to help businesses and energy professionals to
better understand the UK power market so that they can more effectively
manage their price and volume risks.
Delivered from npower's award winning Optimisation Desk by expert Magali Hodgson,
npower's fortnightly energy market update
report details how even though the microeconomic outlook in the Eurozone remains
uncertain leaving Brent volatile, the forecast of above average temperatures and
high UK storage levels are giving a healthy outlook to the prompt market.
Magali Hodgson commented: "Forecast of above average temperature for the next
couple of weeks and the UK's gas and power system coping comfortably with the start
of the winter, have removed some of the risk premium from the balance of the winter
prices, giving a bearish sentiment to the prompt for the moment. It is also
interesting to note that summer 2012 and Winter 2013 are now back to levels seen
before the Japanese disaster indicating that there is maybe some upside to come as
buyers come into the market.
"The question is when will the predicted cold temperature come, and will it be as
cold as last winter's?"
The npower energy market updates are filmed on a fortnightly basis by independent
news agency, Energy Live News. They are delivered from npower's Optimisation Desk,
which is a unique service that provides businesses using flexible purchase energy
contracts with access to information on the UK wholesale energy market and up to

npower helps companies monitor and manage energy consumption to bring commercial and

accurate and timely information on their energy consumption, providing them with

automatically collects data from half-hourly and smart meters, providing a detailed
report on a business' energy consumption behaviour, and the related cost and
environmental impacts of this. With this data, benchmarks can be set and consumption
tracked, alongside mapping of carbon use and cost.
For major energy users, npower offers multi-utility management consultancy to help
organisations to improve efficiencies right across the procurement/consumption
