2.0 hour on-demand seminar with Live Q&A
Available Now (7 day access)

Learn how an energy marketer can make over $30,000 of profit on a single transaction.

Energy and electricity buyers and producers often under-value options in the physical energy and power markets, and energy marketers can make significant money off of this mispricing.

This seminar introduces a new way of looking at energy and power transactions. By thinking in terms of choices (“options”) and being aware of what drives the value of option premium, physical prices discounts, and producer premiums:

1. Energy and power marketers can recognize new profitable transaction opportunities.

2. Customers may be able to negotiate better price discounts on their energy and power purchases and leave less money “on the table.”

3. Energy producers and power generators may be able to negotiate better price premiums on their sales.

This proven online training program features the same material used in the popular PGS in-person classroom seminar. Register today and join the over 10,000 industry professionals who trust PGS for their energy training needs.
