About "Power (English)" report

[Daily] Power (English)

Rim Power report provides price trends in the spot market highlighted as new power supply sources, at a time when the fully-liberalized retail market motivates more enterprises to engage themselves in power business. We publish our own assessments of forward prices as well as forward curves calculated by industry sources based on their own methodology. We also elaborate on trades in the futures markets operated by TOCOM and EEX that are gaining popularity as a price hedging tool. In addition, we update the operational status of thermal power stations in Japan for the upcoming three days. The report also covers spark/dark spreads as well as power tender issuances and outcomes by government offices and local authorities. We also publish power reserve rates that is a key factor to determine the imbalance fee.
