Where does all this information come from and how to prove its accuracy?  I asked this question to Maurice Tessier from Engie. He told me that the history of EnergyScan starts at Engie, where analysts initially compiled this information for in-house traders. Recognizing its broader utility, Engie transformed the tool into a fully productized solution accessible to the wider market, Maurice explained. Engie employs an internally developed methodology, and the forecasts are supplemented by market insights and argumentation in the reports. In essence, the EnergyScan is offering a holistic suite of tools and information to empower stakeholders across the energy and commodity markets, with its roots grounded in Engie’s proven expertise and commitment to accuracy.
