Purchase

Power Plants
Your procurement portfolio might consist of own power plants, power purchase agreements or customer owned plants of all technologies. Detailed understanding of the risks and opportunities these asset classes offer is crucial for the effective optimization. Energy Partner

Trading
The decision which steps of the value chain should be insourced is a critical decision for every company. Depending on the requirements - e.g. selling own production or trading imbalances - and size different business models from full fledged trading to using service provider exist. Energy Partner can help you with creating transparency of advantages, disadvantages, and costs associated with the different models. 

GRIDS

Power
Power grids have regulated returns, which are subject to constant policy changes. It is essential to select the right KPIs and build solid scenarios for developments in the production and consumption environment. This will allow you to steer investment decisions to be compatible with future regulation developments. Energy Partner provides longterm price data by external partners.

Gas
Changing regulations also affect the gas market. New market requirements for gas transport and balancing are evolving. Energy Partners evaluates the potential impact on your company and provides you with actionable recommendations.  

SALES

Wholesale
Client needs are driven by economic and ecologic considerations. Big customers are increasingly demanding new structured products with short term flexibility. How can you adapt your processes to offer structured procurement to your customers while controlling and managing your own risks?

Retail
Retail customers are increasingly interested in the origin of their electricity. Own use (for house owners and rental apartments) become more popular and change the roles of producers and clients. With the market liberalization new competitors enter the industry with innovative business models.

MarkEtdesign

Direct marketing of renewable energies, smaller tranches for ancillary services, and changes in the power declaration of origin are some examples for the recent changes affecting power suppliers. In the gas market, the transmission grid and scheduling will be centralized and the market model becomes more professional. This leads to eroding margins of the traditional business models.

Energy Partners is following current trends in regulations and evaluates the effects on your business model.

DeCentralisation

The current energy system is changing. A large number of small decentralized producers replace large, central power plants. This trend requires a paradigm change for operating power plants as well as grids.

Energy Partner analyses opportunities and risks for your company and provides you with actionable ideas and strategic options for improving your position in the market.

Prosumer

Clients are increasingly producing their own energy through e.g. PV or combined heat and power. Surplus power is being sold to neighbors or local power suppliers. The share of Prosumers is increasing, enabling new business models which require tools and processes to account for the variability and unpredictability of demand.

We support you in integrating Prosumers into your procurement and sales portfolio.
