Worldwide, energy procurement has become a rare source. Safe and affordable energy supply has crossed the national borders. The decreasing European resources and the thirst for energy of the nations going through an industrialization process from Southeast Asia make the issue even more complex.
THE IMPORTANCE OF TRADING
Today, basically no country can cover all its energy requirements from its own sources. Along with the long term agreements with energy exporters and investments in the development regions, the importance of cross-border energy has increased significantly. And not only as a “procurement source” but also as an opportunity to protect us against risks, caused, for instance, by the pro-curement deficit or price fluctuations.
Together, the demand and supply are the market’s determining factors. This means that market prices ensure an effective use of the limited resources or that the prices with the most urgent need for a commodity, pays the highest price (resource assignment).
Basically, any type of energy or energy resources with sufficient demand and supply can be traded. These are mainly electricity, CO2 shares, gas, coal and oil. These so-called “commodities” are physically traded, meaning that, for instance the actual existing quantity of electricity or gas is pur-chased, delivered at an agreed date and time and then invoiced. We make a distinction between the spot market, where they are purchased one day and sold the next day, week or month, and the forward market, with long term products. These assign a physical delivery, for instance electricity or gas, to a future date.
Futures are another product. They indicate daily, according to the close markets, what the market price for electricity will be at a certain date in the future, for instance next year or the year after that. The difference in the purchase price is paid in cash on the delivery date for the futures. Then, this shows if the “bet” paid off.
