New York, NY, October 12, 2017 --(PR.com
, Inc., creator of the world's most comprehensive digital Platform for tracking U.S. energy policy, has teamed up with leading data firm RateAcuity™ to provide seamless access to electric rates in response to growing demand from trade groups, consultants, law firms, and utilities, among others.
EnerKnol has added RateAcuity's best-in-class electric retail rate database to its energy policy Platform as utilities come under pressure to hike fees, putting a premium on the critical market intelligence. With the addition, EnerKnol Platform subscribers can now tap into the most up-to-date retail supply and distribution rates for over 1,800 electric utilities across the nation.
"RateAcuity complements EnerKnol's mission of arming the energy and environmental sectors with quick, easy access to critical information to make informed investment decisions," said Angelique Mercurio, founder and CEO of EnerKnol. "We're transforming the old way of doing business to make information gathering infinitely more efficient."
The addition of electric rate data comes as utilities continue to seek rate hikes before regulators. Higher rates offers a reliable way for service providers to offset eroding earnings from tepid growth in electric demand and weak prices in the wholesale markets.
The data is updated daily and covers most of the U.S. electric retail sector, from major investor-owned utilities to small, rural cooperatives. Rate data is presented in standardized format and broken down by individual cost components to ensure ease of comparison and maximum transparency.
"The collaboration of EnerKnol and RateAcuity will prove highly valuable to customers needing to join policy research with actual rate information in the electric industry," Stephanie Fetchen, co-President of RateAcuity, said. "Providing access to rate data within the EnerKnol platform is a first of its kind partnership for RateAcuity, and the combination of these two platforms enables customers to extend the policy information of EnerKnol to the next level."
The EnerKnol Platform boasts the most comprehensive collection of data on U.S. energy and environmental policy in the world, with more than 16 million regulatory filings, including orders, tariffs, rate changes, comment letters, and 4,000+ other types of governing documents. The Platform is powered by proprietary software that provides real-time intelligence of regulatory and legislative activity at the U.S. federal, regional and state levels.
EnerKnol ensures complete coverage of energy regulation and legislation, including all state public utility commission and environmental departments, regional transmission operators, federal agencies, and everything in between. The Platform’s database is paired with top in-house analyst research and reporting from leading trade publications, including RTO Insider.
New York-based EnerKnol is the creator of the first and only web-based Platform for searching and real-time tracking of U.S. energy policy, earning the firm recognition by the White House as one of “America’s leading private sector innovators." EnerKnol's flagship Platform is favored by leading law firms, consultants, traders, developers, trade associations, utilities, among others, for streamlining research and enhancing regulatory intelligence, with access to the world's largest, most comprehensive collection of documents on the U.S. energy and environmental sectors in the world.
