Axpo offers a wide range of products and services that are tailored to your needs in order to optimally cover your energy requirements.

Tailored, risk-optimised energy solutions

Energy management poses major challenges for all market participants. Axpo offers a wide range of products and services that are tailored to meet your electricity needs (origination). You benefit from Axpo's proven experience in energy trading, risk management and market analysis, as well as its Europe-wide presence. Your consumption behaviour, your willingness to take risks in terms of price and quantity, and the time you want to spend on the project all influence the procurement model choice. You benefit from our comprehensive product portfolio, which offers both standard products and tailored energy solutions.

Our procurement models:

Standard products

Standard products are suitable for clients or counterparties:

  • such as energy supply companies, large industrial customers or trading houses.
  • who operate a structured electricity procurement system and have the relevant expertise.
  • who are active in electricity trading.

Axpo customers and counterparties benefit from Axpo's direct access to 14 marketplaces (stock exchanges and brokers).

All liquid traded base load and peak electricity products (in Switzerland generally up to 3 front years, in Germany generally up to 5 front years) can be procured back-to-back via Axpo.

Axpo recommends that an appropriate framework agreement be drawn up for the procurement of wholesale products.

Full supply at a fixed price

Price hedging over the entire delivery period usually from 1 to 4 years

The full supply model at fixed prices is suitable for the following customers:
  • Smaller to medium-sized industrial companies.
  • Customers who need planning security (possible thanks to a fixed price).
  • Customers who have temporary resources to deal with the topic of electricity procurement (very little effort on the customer side).
Customer risk
  • Electricity costs for the entire quantity delivered depend only on the quantity of energy delivered (consumption-adjusted full supply).
Axpo risk
  • Price risk remains with Axpo (changing wholesale prices).
  • Volume/profile risk in the event of over- or under-stocking remains with Axpo.
  • Balancing energy risks and costs covered by Axpo.
  • Costs for forecast generation covered by Axpo.

Structured full supply

Structured full supply is particularly suitable for customers who like to be close to the market, have the resources to observe the market, and want to profit from market fluctuations.

  • Risk minimisation through the procurement of standard products on the market.
  • Base and peak products with different delivery periods.
  • Secured quantities can still be adjusted before delivery.
  • Difference between purchased forward products and actual purchase (residual quantity) and spot (hourly electricity price).
  • Costs for forecast generation covered by Axpo.
  • Balancing energy costs covered by Axpo.

Tranche full supply

The tranche full supply model is suitable for customers who:
  • want to achieve an electricity price that is close to the market. The price risk is minimised by several purchase times.
  • want to profit from positive market fluctuations. The time of purchase is determined by the customer.
  • 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 according to formula:
  • Tranche price depends on market prices.
  • The number of tranches depends on the amount of energy to be procured.
  • Costs for forecast generation covered by Axpo.
  • Balancing energy costs covered by Axpo.
