Properly designed structured transactions lock in a sure profit margin for an energy/power marketer as long as all parties to the transaction honor their firm contractual promise. Typically a structure transaction is done for multiple months or even multiple years, and this techique can also be applied to power purchase agreements ("PPAs").

This seminar will illustrate how energy/electricity buyers and producers often underprice risk in the physical market and how energy/power marketers can make significant money off of this mispricing.

This proven online seminar features the same material used in the popular PGS in-person classroom training program. Register today and join the over 10,000 energy professionals who have already benefited from an in-depth PGS seminar.
