Thanks to LCG, in 1983 if you wanted to optimize your generator dispatch, you wouldn’t have needed to
pay a lot of money for a mainframe computer and the computer scientists to program it; in 1988,
if you wanted to use a financial or engineering based program dedicated to the energy industry,
it wouldn’t have to be text based; in 1990 if you wanted to analyze the emerging energy markets,
you wouldn’t need to speculate; and in 2008 if you wanted to accurately forecast the physical and
financial operations of a deregulated electricity network, you could have done.
Incorporated in 1983, LCG Consulting has been dedicated to providing clients with the information
and tools necessary to navigate the complex dynamics between the physical and economic aspects
of large energy systems.
Based in Los Altos, California with offices in Paris France, our client base stretches around the
world and consists of players from all aspects of the energy industry.
From optimal generator dispatching programs running on the first generation IBM PC to natural gas
contract evaluations to FTR valuations and merchant plant analysis operating on computing grids,
LCG has always been a pioneer.
Since our founding, we have done thousands of studies for hundreds of clients. Our software models
have set the standard for excellence in the energy industry and our efforts have been utilized
for a wide variety of applications including:
- Asset valuation and strategic planning
- Simulation of electricity and gas markets
- Electricity price forecasting and volatility analysis
- Development of bidding strategies and portfolio optimization
- Transmission, generation and new entrant analysis
- Simulation of ISO/PX operations
- Merger and market power studies
- Emissions modeling and trade analysis
Our success and longevity can be attributed to our ability to maintain an edge in the theoretical
aspects of energy system analysis and technology in general. We are fortunate to have an excellent
and energetic staff with leaders in academia, power system engineering and computer science.
