Brattle experts have deep experience evaluating the efficacy of energy-only market designs to support resource adequacy, and how such constructs compare with centralized capacity markets.

Our experts have analyzed economically-optimal reserve margins, calculated target reserve margins, and compared market design options to improve resource adequacy. Our analysis often includes robust probabilistic modeling of system performance. Together, these assignments have given us a broad view of the best practices and critical aspects of generation investment challenges.
