How This Training Program Works

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 online training program 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 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.
