New generation energy

Transparency in a new generation of energy markets

The accelerated drive towards sustainability is giving rise to a new generation of energy markets – markets with vastly different supply chains, cost and price dynamics, and growth trajectories.

Fastmarkets NewGen gives market participants and investors transparency and clarity for a new generation of energy markets, from daily price data to long-term forecasts and futures contracts.

We are at a critical stage where the pressure to transition to a low-carbon economy is met with supply chains that are volatile, and opaque, and may create imbalances that can impact the rapidly evolving electric vehicle (EV) and energy storage systems (ESS) markets.
