Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Henwood Consulting

    SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Henwood Consulting announced
 the release of "Northeast Markets: Survival of the Fittest," the latest in a
 series of regional power market studies comprising Henwood's suite of Power
 Market Advisory Services covering all of North America. The report is a
 critical analysis and 20-year expected price forecast for the NPCC and MAAC
 Power Markets, including new market structure and rules, up-to-date assessment
 of power supply and demand market fundamentals, long-term forecasts of market
 prices for electricity across 16 market areas, and detailed representation of
 the Northeast markets (3 in PJM, 6 in New York, 4 in New England, and 3 in
 Canada). Other regional power market advisory services available in the series
 include WSCC, ERCOT, and the Midwest (ECAR, MAPP, MAIN and SPP), with the
 Southeast (SERC and FRCC) soon to follow.
     "While the transition to competitive power markets seems to have slowed on
 the retail energy side, the dramatic process of transformation is moving ahead
 in the wholesale power markets," said Gary L. Hunt, Managing Director,
 Henwood Consulting. "Nowhere is this more apparent than the Northeast where
 proposals for a 'standard market design' for the New England, New York and PJM
 wholesale markets are being advanced on several fronts. Understanding the
 implications of market design requires a broad, multi-regional strategic
 context and a set of analytical and risk management tools to effectively
 evaluate proposed rules, market strategies and pricing and product
 implications."
     Henwood will preview its "Northeast Markets: Survival of the Fittest"
 assessment in a special client briefing and roundtable workshop April 18th at
 the Sheraton Copley Hotel in Boston, 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Registration
 information can be found at www.henwoodenergy.com. The Northeast Power Markets
 Advisory Service provides critical business analysis to empower decisions
 about planning and optimizing power supply portfolios, assessing power market
 volatility and risk, assuring a consistent net revenue forecast, and
 evaluating project investment strategies. Henwood's NextGen and GenReporter
 online data applications, key components in the assessment, provide cutting
 edge web-enabled tools for tracking power plant development and plant
 performance.
     The Service is available immediately, and the report can be obtained over
 the Internet at www.henwoodenergy.com. In addition, Henwood can customize its
 Northeast regional model and analysis at an additional cost to include
 individual client-specified market scenarios and sensitivities to enable
 testing of particular market strategies.
 
     About Henwood:  Henwood offers power generators, marketers, and retailers
 integrated software solutions, power market advisory services, and innovative
 on-line data applications to meet the challenges of the restructured energy
