Report offers look at strategies, projects of more than 200 non-regulated power companies

NEW YORK, NY, Aug. 20, 2001 — Platts, the energy information division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, has completed a new report detailing the strategies and projects of more than 200 non-regulated, electric generating companies worldwide.

The report, 202 Independent Power Companies — Profiles of Industry Players and Projects, was the result of direct interviews with virtually all independent power plant developers (IPPs) in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America and the Middle East, using Platts’ global network of energy market specialists and the editors of Platts Global Power Report.

Company executives were each asked a detailed set of questions covering project portfolios, capabilities, strategies, corporate history, affiliates, country involvements, partnership needs, number of employees, power marketing strategies, financial information, business relationships and key contacts.

The projects section of each company entry is grouped by development status and includes project names, locations, sizes, fuels, technologies, power purchasers, lead lenders, costs, on-line dates, partners and ownership percentages.

The annual survey, now in its 10th edition but developed from scratch each year, has become an indispensable market research tool for companies doing business with the independent power industry, including equipment and service providers, electric utilities, fuel suppliers, consultants, bankers, power marketers and other IPPs. A summary is viewable at

Orders are now being accepted for the report, which will be ready for delivery after Labor Day. For more information, call (877) 286-8897 or (212) 438-3003.
