Active portfolio exploitation

Benefit from our expertise.

Axpo exploits and optimises energy portfolios of public services resp. redistributors as well as enterprises and hence follows strategies that are tailored to the individual customer needs considering a defined risk/profit profile.

Strategic trading activities

If you choose one of Axpo‘s active portfolio exploitation, we will transfer your annually requested quantities of energy (or parts of it) into a collective portfolio. Within this portfolio, your quantities of energy will continuously be exploited collaborative with other quantities.

A trading market price, that has been agreed on in advance, will be the initial price for the exploitation. It is our aim to improve this initial price through systematic trading activities independent from the development of the market price.

At the end of the exploitation period you benefit proportionately from the achieved exploitation success.

Customer benefits

Since the procurement of energy at redistributors can never happen detached from sales activities, we are happy to consult you in the projection and realisation of product ideas in terms of procurement for your end customers.

    (Difference between production costs and expected price for electricity)
  • Primary energy carrier costs
