Developing a risk management policy in the current turbulent energy market is becoming an increasingly important part of the energy manager's role, with creation of a flexible energy purchasing strategy now being seen as one way of guarding against market losses.

"The only certainty of the wholesale energy market is that it is turbulent," says Magnus Walker, Director of Trading and Risk at Inprova Energy. "But flexible energy purchasing provides the opportunity to respond to dips in prices and buy advantageously to make the most of these fluctuations. However, this must be supported by a good risk management system and trading strategy."

Inprova Energy has published 'Playing the Energy Lottery: How To Manage Risk', an online source for development of a robust risk management strategy and setting objectives and risk limits. You can read more about this topic here.
