Natural Gas Axpo gives you more flexibility

To best meet our customers’ demand for natural gas, Axpo offers a wide range of products and services tailored to their needs.

Natural fluctuations in energy consumption and volatile prices present market participants with major challenges. Axpo offers a wide range of products and services that can be tailored to meet your energy needs. Our customers also benefit from Axpo's proven experience in energy trading, risk management and market analysis, as well as our growing international presence. 

Your consumption behaviour, willingness to take risks in terms of price and quantity, and time available to devote to the project all influence the choice of procurement model. Axpo customers benefit from our comprehensive portfolio, which offers both standard products and tailored energy solutions. 

We offer the following products:


These are suitable for both clients and counterparties, such as energy supply companies, large industrial customers or trading houses, that operate a structured gas procurement system, have relevant expertise, and are active in gas trading.

Axpo customers and counterparties benefit from Axpo's direct access to key natural gas trading hubs, for example: THE (Trading Hub Europe) in Germany and TTF (Title Transfer Facility) in the Netherlands.

All liquid traded baseload gas products (usually up to three front years) can be procured back-to-back through Axpo.

For the procurement of wholesale products, Axpo recommends drafting an appropriate framework agreement. 

Full supply

Price hedging over the entire delivery period, usually from one to four years.

The tranche full supply model is suitable for the following customers:

  • Small to medium-sized industrial companies 
  • Customers who need planning security (made possible through a fixed price) 
  • Customers who have limited time resources to deal with the issue of gas procurement (our model requires minimal customer effort

Customer risk

  • Gas costs depend solely on the how much energy is actually delivered (consumption-adjusted full supply) 


Axpo risk 

  • Price risk remains with Axpo (from changing wholesale prices)

  • Volume/profile risk in the event of over- or under-stocking remains with Axpo

  • Compensation energy risks and costs covered by Axpo

Tranche full supply

The Tranche full supply model is suitable for customers who:

  • want to benefit from Axpo's know-how. Axpo supports its customers with market reports and analyses 
  • want planning security before delivery. All tranches are purchased before delivery; the energy price is calculated as an average

Procurement of individual tranches:

  • Tranche price depends on market prices

  • The number of tranches depends on the amount of energy to be procured

  • Structuring costs are covered by Axpo

  • Cost of forecast generation covered by us 

  • Energy balancing costs also covered
