Tranche delivery: If you have a high power requirement, it is often worthwhile to cover this in several subsets using a tranche model. By spreading your electricity procurement over the entire year, you can react to the current market situation and thus significantly reduce your price risk. Of course, you can also fix the entire quantity at low prices. You can determine the purchase dates for the tranches yourself and place your order via our market access. On request, we can also support you in the development and implementation of your purchasing strategy. This way you benefit from falling electricity prices without having to continuously observe the market.

Full Service: We handle the trading business for you. Billing is based on current market prices.

Trading: You define the time and quantity of the purchase or sale according to your requirements. You transmit your order via a secure e-mail, SFTP server, a REST interface or our customer portal NEXTRA.

You can significantly reduce your price risk with a tranche model in which electricity procurement is spread over the entire year.

Day-Ahead: You gain access to the day-ahead auction and can trade full hours or block bids for the next day according to your needs (for example, base or peak load) - from a minimum quantity of 0.1 MW up to a contractually agreed maximum capacity. The intersection of demanded and offered quantity results in the market clearing price, which is then paid out for the respective product.

Intraday: Trade power in 15-minute, hourly, or standard blocks (for example, peak or baseload). You can trade a position up to 5 minutes before maturity. The smallest tradable unit in intraday trading is 0.1 MW, and the possible price range for a megawatt hour is -9,999 euros to 9,999 euros. You receive or pay the bid price that was awarded in the respective transaction.

Balancing group management: Intraday trading offers you the opportunity to offset shortfalls or surpluses in your own balancing group by short-term, intraday trading activities. In addition, you can use short-term trading to produce the electricity of your customers' own generation plants or plants as required - and thus as profitable and system-stabilizing as possible.

Example of intraday trading with the trading platform NEXTRA.
To take full advantage of these opportunities, you should have a good overview of your portfolio and be able to forecast demand and consumption as accurately as possible. A perfect tool for this is our trading platform NEXTRA, with which you can not only manage and analyze your data, but also place your orders directly.

Control energy marketing: We connect your plants to the control system of our virtual power plant and carry out the necessary test procedure. The provision of the plants is remunerated with a standby fee, the so-called performance price. This has no effect on the mode of operation. In the event of fluctuations in the power grid, the output of the plants is adjusted accordingly and an energy price is paid in addition to the capacity price.

White Label: Would you like to act as a direct marketer and virtual power plant for your customers? No problem! We also offer you the complete management of the systems you bring in as a white label solution. From the production of remote control to the optimization of the systems to trading - we make our entire know-how available to you.
