Renewable Energy Price Risk Management at the Energy Exchange

February 28, 2020

With subsidy schemes being gradually phased out across Europe, renewable energy assets are entering the world of merchant risk management and energy trading. Whilst PPAs are one tool to set a baseline for prices that can be relied upon by developers and banks, there remains a price risk when exposed to wholesale market movements. For several decades, energy trading has primarily been the territory of utilities, trading houses and banks. Now, renewable energy project developers and offtakers exposed to wholesale prices must learn how to employ the financial products available to manage the risk exposure to variable prices.

Green Innovations of Antennas

whitePaper | May 16, 2022

Energy saving has become one of the most discussed topics of green development. Antennas, especially passive antennas, do not directly consume DC or AC electric energy, leaving them easily overlooked when energy saving is discussed. However, as unique devices that convert between radio frequency (RF) energy and electromagnetic waves, antennas transmit the RF energy to mobile devices. The efficiency in which the antennas convert energy has a significant bearing on the power consumed by base stations
