US Power Plant project- energy for the future

If we can predict future energy prices on a price per kilowatt hour basis for a specific gas fired electric power plant, assuming fixed competitive supply in its local market over the next 5 years we could better gauge what sort of energy supply would be needed and how we will proved for that need.

Nature and Context

Government, satellite imagery, weather, economic, demographic, social media, and financial energy market pricing data and other relevant/alternative data sources, could be used to help determine the needs of energy. We could focus more on longer term times scales (day vs. week scales or even monthly periods), which would better fit the goal of building a model that focuses more on longer term macro trends and not on short-term daily price changes.
