Trading Forum

Stock markets and energy procurement are the anchor points of this forum. Topics such as marketing strategies, stimulation of the renewables, forecasting or emissions trading are addressed. 

In addition to interesting presentations, there will also be exciting discussion panels, both in English and German. For program sessions in German, we offer simultaneous translation into English.

The expert forums are open and free of charge. You don’t need to register, you only need a ticket for the trade fair.

The European Union and its members have committed to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, and significant emission cuts already by 2030. Sector coupling, hydrogen and energy storage are some of the most discussed technologies to reach this target but countries are still lacking detailed plans to reach it.

Wärtsilä has built sophisticated long-term modeling including sector coupling. They will present different paths, including their total cost, which Germany could follow to reach a 100% renewable power system. In addition, this first presentation will discuss what is required to meet the target much earlier than 2050.

Centrica Energy Trading will report on how to couple accounting with PtX electricity consumption and the electricity markets. Also, they will share the first experiences with granular green electricity.

Trading green electricity from one's own photovoltaic system with neighbors, the kindergarten, or the grocery store: This is how electricity trading could work in a few years. It is even grid-friendly, because bottlenecks are taken into account and flexibilities are integrated. 

To turn this scenario into reality, we present two exciting peer2peer trading projects in Europe and Germany in this block.

Climate change is one of the key global challenges - also for the energy industry. That is why not only the EU but also many companies are raising their climate targets for 2030 and emissions trading is seen as an important element on the path to climate neutrality.

In this panel, you can discuss national and European emissions trading with the Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt) and gain exciting insights into RWE Supply & Trading's new trading and procurement activities in the field of voluntary emission certificates.

Furthermore, CO2IN will present its mobile app, which allows companies and private individuals to buy and trade emission certificates.

The political goal of climate neutrality by 2045 has far-reaching effects on the wholesale electricity markets and poses major challenges for companies. More volatile wholesale prices, increasing competition, erupting CO2 prices coupled with the simultaneous orientation of one's own company towards complete CO2 neutrality are focal points that significantly increase the requirements for successful business management. At the same time, companies must also take into account EU-wide regulations such as the EU taxonomy and orient investments towards sustainability.

Minimising one's own CO2 emissions and at the same time protecting oneself against rising electricity prices is therefore becoming the central paradigm of economic and ecological corporate management. Half of the companies have already set themselves the goal of operating in a climate-neutral manner before 2045. 

The current crisis in the energy market makes it even clearer that renewable energies are a location factor for Germany as a business location and can guarantee security of supply and price. 

However, it is precisely this transformation that offers a great opportunity, as the market for sustainably produced goods is growing steadily and German industry can thus position itself as a pioneer on the global market. Many companies have already greatly reduced the energy requirements of their production. However, they reach limits at this point when it comes to further reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

Sourcing green energy is a key lever for the final transformation of production processes and downstream supply chains. Many players in the market have already recognised this and accordingly the demand for green energy, but especially for green electricity, is increasing rapidly. 

The question now arises as to which procurement strategy is the right path for one's own company.

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are long-term purchase contracts for electricity under civil law that are concluded bilaterally between the electricity producer as seller and the electricity consumer as buyer. They essentially contain the delivery quantity, the price, the term and other individual contractual clauses for the purchase of electricity. The contractual commitment is intended to ensure stable and predictable prices for all contract partners. Throughout Europe, the importance of PPAs has increased significantly in recent years and the German market is already in the starting blocks.

In this expert forum, we will show green power procurement options for companies in Germany and shed light on the market for green PPAs in detail.

Will clean hydrogen be one of the most traded commodities in the next decade? Stock exchanges are already publishing prices and regulators are discussing market structures. At the same time, (green) hydrogen will remain a limited commodity for the time being, but the decarbonization needs of several sectors are driving demand.

In these expert presentations, you will learn more about factors and steps for a global hydrogen market and what the energy industry can learn from the lack of liquid markets in natural gas when developing a hydrogen market.

The European Union wants to become the world's first climate neutral continent by 2050. This goal will only be achieved, if new technologies find their way to the market. Those do not necessary need to equal expensive, but could quite possibly reach a positive net value by 2030 as will be demonstrated in the opening keynote of the session.

There is a big need for renewable generation as well as for applications, that are able to catch CO2-emissions, for example in the industrial sector. Both have in common that they need carbon pricing to be competitive. In a panel discussion, we will look at different technologies, talk to possible users and discuss the future of carbon pricing as an enabler for climate neutral technologies.

Today's power purchase agreement (PPA) market is fast-moving and not the same as it was just two years ago. As businesses, utilities and government agencies scramble to procure renewable energy, demand is growing faster than supply can keep up. In this event, LevelTen Energy and Aurora Energy Research will discuss past performance and current trends in the European PPA market, provide insight into some of the hottest PPA markets, and make predictions about what the future holds for renewable energy transactions.

For operators of critical and complex infrastructures, systematic asset management (AM) is increasingly becoming a competitive factor. In this context, the energy sector is facing completely new challenges in the course of the energy transition. Keyword: decentralization. Individual utilities have to operate many more smaller units. An AM system deals with the asset management of an operation or organization. The ISO 55001 standard defines a catalog of 70 requirements for effective management of all types of physical assets - in a uniform, structured framework.

In the second part of the event, experts form Fraunhofer research institute will answer the question how grid loss prognosis for energy transmission grids can be improved. They will present a method that is used in tailored variants for predicting grid losses in the transmission grid of 50Hertz Transmission GmbH and TenneT TSO GmbH. They will also show how the model approaches are becoming more and more accurate in predicting actual grid losses.
