2011 Highlights from Trading

2011 highlights from trading

Good contribution to results from business areas in trading

  • Asset trading includes transactions with electricity, gas and guarantees of origin and serves to optimise the value of the portfolio. Our trading team understands what is necessary to achieve good margins in a difficult business environment.
  • Management of cross-border transport capacities made an important contribution to results. Thanks to the Campocologno (Switzerland) – Tirano (Italy) merchant line, Repower has its own cross-border electricity capacity. In addition, Repower has been managing gas transport capacity in the pipeline between Austria and Italy since 2011.
  • Despite unstable economic conditions and unpredictable price volatility, Proprietary Trading was able to make a positive contribution to Group results. Thanks to their continual presence on the market, our traders gain additional knowledge of the market, which is decisive for optimal management of our asset portfolio and minimising the associated risks.
  • Trading with guarantees of origin, which is handled by the Renewables Trading team set up especially for this purpose, has been developing very positively. Energy volumes from successfully concluded transactions have increased significantly.
