EV Energy Map

Spatial data can yield fresh insights into energy industry dynamics and trends — insights that aren’t always available with raw data alone.  EV Energy Map combines proprietary map layers with data from other Velocity Suite modules, as well as your own imported proprietary data, and presents it geospatially, adding a new dimension to your analysis of the industry and its key players.  It helps you understand historic trends in pricing, generation, and emissions and delivers a new perspective into competitor projects and decisions.

Use it to find the optimal location for new projects based on proximity to existing and proposed energy infrastructure, including power plants, transmission lines, substations, gas pipelines, and other essential energy layers.  EV Energy Map also includes an array of geospatial tools that enhance your analytical capabilities.

How You Can Use EV Energy Map

  • Locate existing and proposed infrastructure and understand how they relate from a geospatial perspective.
  • Research projects in a given region, monitor their progress, and track key details such as ownership, fuel type, and capacity.
  • Create cartographic quality maps for presentations.
  • Track the historical evolution of market prices in an area.
  • Perform in-depth analyses on nearby competitor plants to understand where they source fuels, their financial performance, and any reported issues they encounter (such as transmission congestion).
  • Calculate the impact of location on delivered fuel costs.
  • Keep tabs on M&A activity by visualizing the asset configuration of key players and the way their market strategies can overlap.
