Market Switzerland

“By supplying the energy for our chairlifts, snowmakers and restaurants, Repower helps give our guests the ultimate snow experience.”

Last year the Trading business, which operates out of Poschiavo, was again dominated by even lower market prices. Only spot prices in Switzerland showed any signs of a slight recovery, but this effect was more than offset by currency effects. In this challenging environment Repower concentrated on optimising the management of its own assets. This included cross-border capacity between Italy and Switzerland, which continued to underpin earnings in 2015. This so-called asset optimisation, which increasingly focused on short-term horizons (intraday markets and ancillary services), in conjunction with a systematic hedging strategy, softened the negative effects of low market prices.

Given the challenging market situation, Repower's market access business on the wholesale markets can be described as satisfactory.
