Flexibility Optimisation

Using quantitative analysis and bespoke software, EDF Trading undertakes modelling to evaluate different pricing, risk and hedging solutions applicable to an asset. In the process, its analysis will often identify overlooked opportunities to optimise the asset in the marketplace. Those opportunities can then be pursued and converted into revenue advantages.

All assets, particularly power generation assets, have flexibility in their production capabilities. By analysing that flexibility and relating it to calculated market requirements EDF Trading identifies bespoke transaction structures that can add revenue value. With the advantage of insights gained from its multi-commodity, asset-backed global business, those transactions can be accurately structured around a range of linked market strategies including oil, gas, coal and carbon as well as power itself.
