Clearly there is a need for a methodology that can ensure the profitability of an investment in wind power. Uncertain market prices driven by external factors calls for a long-term hedging horizon and a clear understanding of the revenue levels necessary for achieving expected rate of returns. Also for avoiding unpleasant surprises in the form of revenue losses.
There are no shortcuts. It’s about having a structured way of working in order to take full advantage of fluctuations in market prices.
Axpo Nordic has been helping industries optimise their energy procurement since 1996. We have developed a methodology for portfolio management that connects price hedging with the individual company’s finances; experience that we now bring to the wind power industry. We offer wind power investors a complete methodology and tools for securing revenues and thus the overall economy of the investment.
We work closely with you to establish a customised strategy for selling your electricity and GoO production in order to optimise revenues and manage the risks. With the support of Axpo’s market analyses, various price hedging is done to secure revenue.
Our involvement begins with surveying your situation. We then establish a methodology using either existing products or customized solutions.
A standard component within our offering is a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), which provides a fixed price for every MWh produced regarding both power and green certificates. In addition we can offer everything from simple Nasdaq OMX hedges to more advanced solutions with cap- and floor options. With sister companies throughout Europe we can also offer trading beyond Finland’s borders to capitalise on the green value of wind power production.
We were concerned that Axpo would be too big and impersonal for us, and chose them first as a supplier to just 25% of our facilities. But their results were in a class of their own and just one year later they are now our only supplier.
