How this online course works

This practical step-by-step explanation of how physical and financial bilateral power is bought and sold within an ISO footprint is not available anywhere else.

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 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.

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.
