PROCUREMENT STRATEGIES IN BRIEF
Option one: Fixed strategy
Good for securing your volume in a one-time purchase
The fixed strategy places emphasis on searching for the market low and provides price certainty. We use a wide range of market analysis techniques to identify low points in the market to lock out 100% of the volume in the portfolio. The purchases will be made within 12 months of the renewal date of your energy contract.
Option two: Lock/unlock
Good for taking advantage of market volatility
The lock/unlock strategy aims to optimise your price. We use technical analysis to identify and react to market trends and patterns. This strategy looks to cap prices in rising markets and expose volume in falling markets, unlocking more volume than a capped strategy.
Option three: Capped
Good for budget certainty
The capped strategy places emphasis on optimising your price through risk management, but with the protection of a predetermined price cap. Mechanisms within this strategy protect against rising market prices and provide an upper level budgetary price, whilst allowing strategic trading to capitalise on a downward market movement.
Option four: Fully flexed hybrid
Good for price optimisation if you can take the risk
The Fully Flexed Hybrid strategy looks to buy volume within the delivery period. The energy trading team will decide whether to buy on the month ahead or day ahead market, depending on the market conditions. Please note this strategy is not available for non-half-hourly electricity supplies. You also have the option to lock/unlock with a fixed strategy if the variable price is starting to climb.
