Data you can rely on

When you need to make planning decisions and validate assumptions, you need reliable and complete data. The E Source approach ensures that our market forecasts are realistic projections of the future. They’re grounded in fact and consider assumptions and unknowns.

Mitigate risk from a volatile market

Our global experts can advise you on when and where to invest in batteries for your generation, distribution, transmission customer-energy storage, and EV needs.

Plan for batteries on the grid

We’ll help you stay ahead of market pricing and supply and demand trends. You’ll better understand how to match load on the grid and keep up with the rising demand for batteries and renewables.

Design customer-facing programs

Customer demand for battery storage systems is increasing because of reliability challenges as well as the increasing affordability of battery systems. We can assist in the optimized for your goals.

Estimate future costs

To develop an integrated resource plan (IRP), you need to accurately forecast the cost-effectiveness of energy storage assets. We’ll help you plan future battery purchases by quantifying cost sensitivity for individual components or materials and establishing strategies for hedging the risks of those costs.

Track battery innovations

Our research publications and our battery experts will help you understand how battery technology is evolving and how best to incorporate batteries into your business strategy. With access to our knowledge and data, you can feel confident developing battery-related requests for proposals for your utility planning efforts.
