About us

Nena AS

Company Nena was founded in 1997 by Hans Gunnar Nåvik on the idea that emerging trading in the newly de-regulated Nordic power market needed backing of high quality fundamental analysis from a neutral counterpart. Nordisk Energianalyse, or Nena, came to life with Christian Sjødin as the Managing Director and co-founder. Since then the company has established itself as a respected analysis house covering power, coal, freight and gas markets.

Nena clients Our client base covers energy majors, utilities, funds, banks, shipping companies and private investors. Looking to strengthen their focus in commodity trading or in need of advice on investments they turn to Nena for analyses and competence. Our first clients from 1997 have continuously been using our expertise and analyses in their daily core business related to energy markets, and new clients continue to express their fascination for our views and advice.

In-house modelling Nena builds fundamental models and methods with strong emphasis on a combination of economic theory, market models, weather impacts and marginal cost calculations. All price forecasts are solely based on in-house developed models in order to avoid any black boxes. Our approach relies on basic supply and demand modelling as well as advanced optimization tools.

By combining our trading based analysis tools with a holistic view on global commodity markets we aim to provide a clearer picture of the global energy complex. Our analyses reveal coherence between numerous price drivers, enabling us to explain substitution pricing, and ultimately consequences for future pricing of various commodities.

Transfer of knowledge Over the lifetime of the company the team of energy experts have contributed in day-to-day trading advice, strategy work, as speakers, in special projects and as consultants to clients at top management and board level. Throughout the years, Nena has compiled reliable and consistent analyses with proven track record.

A StormGeo company Nena is a part of StormGeo located in Oslo.
