International Market Monitoring

Potomac Economics provides economic consulting services to international clients on a wide range of wholesale electricity market monitoring and market development issues.

We have provided consulting services to countries in South East Europe, the Black Sea Region, Latin America, and Canada. Our work has been far ranging, including transmission access issues, market monitoring and market monitoring software applications, and wholesale market design and market development.

This work has also involved complex litigation concerning open-access transmission tariff issues in Quebec and a market price assessment project in Manitoba. We have worked with USAID and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners on projects in South East Europe and the Black Sea Region where we assisted regulators in reforming wholesale market electricity in accordance with European Union Electricity Directives. This development work has involved cross-border transmission access, competitive energy market design, ancillary services market design, and market monitoring.
