In this blog, Rajiv focuses on the modelling behind storage investment decisions and how an approach rooted in market fundamentals could have helped.
I lead the development of new market offerings in the Energy Analytics team.
I work closely with clients and organisations across the energy market to understand their needs, and ensure our products and services deliver meaningful impact to businesses. This requires engaging regularly with industry and staying on top of the latest technological advances.
The energy market is complex, from a policy, operational and data perspective. Making decisions in this dynamic environment is becoming more difficult – from understanding the likelihood of a revenue stream in 20 years to predicting wind outturn in the next hour. I particularly enjoy building products that tackle these complex decisions and distil them into clear, actionable and interactive visualisations, leaving clients able to focus on using their expertise to make decisions.
As we develop all of our products ourselves, I also supervise our development teams to ensure our products are robust, scalable and user-friendly.
I have a background in software development, data integration, artificial intelligence and energy consultancy.
LCP are able to use technical knowledge to appropriately communicate relevant information to aid decision making.

How I have helped our clients
In 2018 National Grid commissioned LCP to develop an approach to calculating the incremental EFCs (equivalent firm capacities) for wind and solar plants, with a view towards setting deratings for their participation in future capacity auctions.
LCP has worked with a number of investors and generation owners in GB and Ireland to evaluate specific wind assets.
