Do you want to help renewable developers find the best locations for their new installations among the rapidly changing U.S. electricity markets? How about working with clients to identify and pursue investment opportunities across a range of potential technologies and market types?


ICF IS DOING JUST THAT! In the last year, we have:


• Quantified the risks to wind developers in Texas of curtailment related to constrained transmission resources
• Forecasted value streams for battery storage in the western U.S.
• Assessed the impact on energy market pricing of offshore wind connecting in the Northeast

• Determined the value of conventional generation resources to system reliability in the Mid-Atlantic


Within the Commercial Energy Practice, our Transmission Team provides owners, investors, and developers of energy assets with a comprehensive range of services, including energy market forecasting; valuation of new and existing generation assets; congestion and curtailment analysis for wind and solar generators; and assessment of transmission and non-transmission alternatives to meet electricity load.

Our high-impact work contributes to the continued development and improvement of new electricity generation and advanced technologies throughout North America.


Our staff includes energy market analysts, specializing in forecasting, market structures, and policy; engineers who understand and model transmission resources and needs from the nodal level all the way up to the interconnect level; and other energy experts offering highly specialized skills in market fundamentals.
