Axpo handles 25% of wind power production in Norway, Sweden and Finland, and is a large, independent player in balance responsibility and risk management services. Managing more than 10,000 MW of total wind power, Axpo has a leading position in several European markets. In the Nordic region we are the market leader in Norway, Sweden and Finland with a total portfolio of over 2,200 MW under management.
To be a winner in the Nordic wind market requires managing market risks in order to achieve the necessary stability to secure financing, whilst maintaining the opportunity for high prices.
Recent years have painfully demonstrated how quickly prices for power and electricity certificates can sway – from historically high levels to very low. These fluctuations are built into the market structure where prices are driven by the weather situation and by the global economy. Many wind power investors hoping for a steadily increasing price level have taken a harsh financial hit as a result.
Axpo has the tools you need - a complete package featuring market analysis, hedging of power, electricity certificates and Guarantees of Origin, plus risk policy development and continuous Revenue Management.
Until now, price hedges have been the only option for wind investors that want to minimize risk. However, revenues have still fluctuated with the actual wind resource. Axpo can now offer a solution that not only eliminates the price risk but also covers the wind risk. The result is a fixed cash flow lowering your risks even further which allows for improved financial conditions. Together with Axpo you can now secure the wind and gain a stable cash flow.
