Renewable Energy Price Risk Management at the Energy Exchange

whitePaper | 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.
