How To Execute Power Marketing Transactions Within an ISO Using Financial Power and LMP Auctions

Live Online Seminar: January 16th 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm (ET)
On-Demand Recording Available January 23rd (72 hour access)

How These Online Seminars Work

Learn how power marketers combine ISO energy auctions and bilateral financial contracts to buy and sell physical & financial power in wholesale and retail competitive markets. You will also learn how to move power financially once it is on the grid which is easier and cheaper than buying transmission service.

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.

What You Will Learn

  1. How to transport physical power financially causing it to ‘jump’ between regions which can help renewable energy reach new PPA customers. 
  2. How commodity swaps, cfds, and financial futures contracts can be combined with ISO energy auctions to give a company "the best of both worlds" when buying, selling, and moving power.
  3. A detailed listing of all the costs components contained within a competitive end-user price including supply cost, LMP spreads, HV and LV NITS (HV & LV TAC in California), UCAP, Resource Adequacy, FRACMOO (California), and the five different ancillary service charges.
  4. What "Basis Risk" is and how a company can hedge this risk financially using an ICE, trading desk, or ISO financial product.
  5. What FTRs, CRRs, and TCCs are; how they help an ISO reduce transmission congestion; how these products can hedge risk; and how they can cause transaction losses for a power marketer.
  6. Why most bilateral power transactions with an ISO/RTO footprint are purely financial, and why generators, LSEs, QSEs, and SCs, often self-schedule.
  7. What Fix-for-Floating swaps, Dart swaps, and financial futures contracts are. 
  8. Why a power marketer often has to underprice risk to get a deal done.
