We are an industry leader in energy risk management and valuation. Our economic experts have in-depth knowledge of the electric power, natural gas, and petroleum industries in the U.S. and abroad. Our work includes management consulting, expert testimony in regulatory proceedings, and litigation support on issues including design and pricing of retail services; procurement policies for electric and gas utilities; and energy trading, contract valuation, and risk management disputes. Clients include electric and gas utilities worldwide as well as trade and industry associations, such as Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

The Brattle Group has developed for EPRI a suite of software tools for valuation and risk management know as the Energy Book System (EBS). The EBS provides participants in the energy industry with capabilities for valuation of structured and vanilla wholesale energy contracts; for portfolio risk measurement; for portfolio risk analysis, including extensive capabilities for simulation of hedging costs and policies; and for valuation and management of physical generation resources, with common but complex features such as start costs, non-linear heat rate curves, and embedded retirement options.
