Our energy and water market experts have been helping our customers with their procurement since the 1980s.
With advanced trading tools and real time market data we target the right time to buy at the best possible price. Our energy traders use many analytical tools to identify the best time to buy energy, such as Candlesticks, Bollinger Band analysis and Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).
We formulate both short term and long term positions, taking into account the key drivers, which could affect future energy prices. By forecasting two years ahead our people can provide an outlook on third party charges and evaluate the benefit of fixing charges within a supply agreement or allowing pass-through values to be allowed. Below you see a short bio of our experienced key managers.
