Portfolio and risk management

Custom-tailored, individual solutions

The energy transition is bringing about lasting and serious changes to the framework conditions for all participants in the electricity market. On the demand side, the German energy mix is less and less dominated by hard coal and lignite, while the supply-dependent energy sources of solar and wind are playing an increasingly important part in power generation. The demand side is becoming more flexible and sector coupling is bringing new consumers to the market. Portfolio management with a forward-looking approach must keep an eye on these changes in order to take advantage of new opportunities instead of taking avoidable risks. With our energy management expertise, we support both energy supply companies with and without their own generation facilities, as well as large consumers, in successfully maintaining their position in the market.

Risk management & risk controlling

Energy supply companies are constantly confronted with risks on electricity markets. In addition to the typical volatility of electricity prices, unforeseen power plant outages, extreme weather events or external shocks on commodity markets, for example, can also cause significant price movements. Well-functioning, efficient risk management is therefore a major pillar in achieving sustainable success. We develop processes for identifying, assessing and managing relevant risks that are tailored to your trading strategy and corporate policy. This way, we provide you with targeted and institutionalized support in the management of undesirable events that endanger the achievement of your company’s goals – and thus secure your company’s success in the long term.
