With Marcus Ferdinand, we at THEMA significantly strengthen our carbon and power market analytics team. Marcus has more than ten years of experience in advising stakeholders in the private and public sectors on the changing energy and climate landscape. His expertise is in forecasting price patterns in traded energy commodities.
“I am excited to join the team of energy market experts at THEMA, covering a broad range of carbon pricing, energy market and transport-related topics. With market parity for renewable energy sources, emerging technologies disrupting established market settings and an overall changing power market landscape, the Green Deal sets stage for some structural change. The carbon and power markets are in transition and I am excited to play my part in putting Europe on a net zero pathway.”
Marcus will focus on a range of carbon pricing and energy market topics. Together with THEMA’s modelling team he started to work on an update to the mid- to long-term carbon and power price outlook, due in September. This will adjust for the Fit-for-55 proposals as well as consider the recent significant changes of the wider energy complex.
Prior to joining THEMA, Marcus headed the European carbon and power analytics team at ICIS as well as the EU carbon analytics team at Thomson Reuters. Further, he worked in analyst roles with E.ON’s energy trading department and the company’s headquarter. Marcus has a double Diploma in industrial engineering, specializing in Energy and Environmental Management, from the University of Flensburg and the Flensburg University of Applied Sciences.
