Prices: what happens next (EDF Energy)

Caught your breath from 2018 yet? It was an amazingly tumultuous year for many components of the electricity prices you broker for your business customers. The wholesale power market rose by 40%. The Capacity Market was put on hold. The Energy Intensive Industries exemption scheme changed. And Ofgem began a major review of transmission charges. What does 2019 hold in store for us? James Chaplin, Energy Trader, will share EDF Energy’s outlook on the wholesale energy markets and non-energy costs, and show how you can stay on top of them day to day.

Matchmaking your customer's credit to the right energy product (SSE Business Energy)

2018 has been a challenging year for the high street and the UK’s looming exit from the European Union has been widely blamed for eroding consumer confidence. With sales down, a multitude of businesses could face potential credit rating downgrades.

But how can you find the best contract for your customer if their credit rating is endangered? With the help of our Risk Matchmaker, we’ll discuss how choosing the right energy product can help your customer in challenging market conditions.

Speaker: Rob Silvester, Strategic Marketing Manager

Power Purchase Agreements – Securing additionality and price certainty (ScottishPower)

Driven by consumer and shareholder awareness of climate change risks, environmental impact is increasingly a focus for companies. Businesses also lack long-term certainty on future energy costs, and some renewable technologies currently lack a subsidised route to market for new projects.

Ian Steel and Danni Fitzpatrick will explore how PPAs offer a potential win-win for TPI partners, their customers, and renewable energy developers through ScottishPower’s PPA offering for Commercial Energy customers.

Speakers: Ian Steel, Retail Portfolio Manager, Danni Fitzpatrick, Investment and Business Performance

Understanding a big new risk in fixed price contracts (EDF Energy)

Have you heard of the TCR and RAFLC? They’re Ofgem’s Targeted Charging Review and Review of Access and Forward-Looking Charges – the biggest shake up of network charges in decades. Although still in consultation and not due to come into effect before 2021, the reviews are already creating extra risk for longer term fixed price contracts.

The different ways suppliers are pricing the new regimes are creating large ranges – roughly 10% of today’s rates – in electricity contracts that extend into 2021. Binoy Dharsi, Market Rules Advisor at EDF Energy, will explain the proposed changes and what to look out for to avoid of your customers being overcharged, or undercharged and faced with unexpected extra costs later

Flexibility not failure – how to manage change (CNG Ltd)

Why did the suppliers go bust? What were the key drivers that put them over the edge? In this session CNG’s Rob Taylor looks back on 2018/19, the suppliers that went into liquidation & what the capacity market suspension meant. We ask; how do suppliers cover these on-going industry risks? How do we as suppliers future proof ourselves and what do TPI’s need to consider when working with suppliers?

11:15 - 12:00

Could data be more valuable than oil? (SSE Business Energy)

Data is transforming the way we live and work, while opening new opportunities for businesses to monitor and control energy usage. You may have heard that data is the new oil, but having lots of it might not make you rich.

As more and more data becomes available through Smart, is your customer capable of harnessing all the information and making sense of it? To make sure your customer is reaping the benefits of their data, join us to understand the opportunities for identifying savings, efficiencies, and sustainable choices.
