Energy Markets

Energy markets are commodity markets that deal specifically with the trade and supply of energy. Energy markets tend to refer to an electricity market. Base-load power sources are the backbone of society. They are used to deliver power to billions of people around the world.

With government moving towards cleaner and greener energy, the 21st century could be powered by multiple sources.

Coal-powered stations are currently the main source of base load power. Nuclear power, which requires uranium, is up and coming. That said, with the ability to store an almost unlimited capacity, vanadium redox batteries offer potential as an alternative base load energy source. In case you haven’t heard about them, there’s a lot to like about VRBs. They are non-flammable, environmentally friendly, and maintain 90% of their capacity over 20 years.

We focus on the latest Energy Market news

With lots of potential future base load power sources, the energy market is likely to present multiple investment opportunities in the future. For that reason, rest assured, our editors are always one step ahead. They frequently analyse the movers and shakers in the energy market.
