Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors


Introduction to Gas & Electricity Wholesale Trading

Wholesale trading is at the heart of the GB market structure. As wholesale markets become more volatile with a changing generation mix and the impacts of international markets, there has never been a more important time to understand the fundamentals that underpin trading rules and the commercial behaviors that players in the market take. Cornwall Insight has launched this course to help stakeholders in traded markets understand these key drivers better.

What does it cover?

  • Overall market design, wholesale price trends and why parties are incentivized to trade
  • An overview of the key players in traded markets: suppliers, electricity generators, gas producers, traders and brokers
  • Understanding routes to market: exchange trading, over the counter products, Power Purchase Agreements and other trading strategies
  • Typical trading “products” and how they are used by participants
  • Risk management by party. Including hedging strategies and external trading agreements
  • Case study analysis of recent price trends and strategies taken in the market by suppliers and generators
