interview petroleum economist Cyriel de Jong

European power market magazine featured an interview with our own Cyriel de Jong in their May 2021 edition. Editor-in-Chief Peter Ramsay interviewed various leaders of the industry:

  • Paul Monk – The imperfection of data. While transparency and data provision have made huge strides, there are still information gaps and quality¬† ¬†problems, warns the founder of UK power analysis firm Catalyst Commodities
  • Georg Ostermaier – The rush to intraday. The profits to be made from optimising a portfolio on a close-to-real-time basis have driven a significant shift in the market

  • Phil Hewitt – Regulatory change transforms the trading landscape. The rise of intermittent generation is not the only agent of change in electricity markets. Rule changes can also have a significant impact
  • Rajiv Gogna – Taking the short term to the long. The rise of renewables has revolutionised short-term trading. But that will have a feedback loop on the longer-term market
  • Matt Nicholas – The rise of non-traditional actors. In the new world of decentralised generation, batteries, EVs and more sophisticated demand-side response, almost any organisation of size is potentially a power market participant
  • Hugo Birkelund – Old dogs learn new tricks. The founders of Energy Quantified by Montel have built analysis models before. But this time they have torn up the rulebook
