Analytica for Energy & Power
The energy industry is changing more rapidly than it has in many decades with the advent of new energy technologies and the start of our transition to a more sustainable World. Analytica is playing an important role in evaluating these technologies and policies comprehensively — in terms of economics, environment, and energy security.
With these changes come inevitable uncertainties in energy prices, technology costs, demand, and environmental impacts. Energy analysts are using Analytica’s integrated tools for uncertainty to help them quantify and manage these risks. Analytica is being used across the entire spectrum of energy, from power companies, oil & gas companies, small and large energy consultants, to universities, NGOs, and government.
