At Enel Colombia, we conduct energy sales and purchase operations in large blocks with generators and marketers to execute long-term contracts.
Through the Derivex platform, we make contracts for future transactions in the derivatives market. In future energy markets, standardized energy commitments are negotiated in accordance with the rules established by market managers, and compliance with commitments is ensured through a central counterparty chamber.
With the negotiation of these contracts, competition in the electricity sector is improved, the risk profile of buyers and sellers, and in general of the system, is reduced, contributing to the creation of a competitive and sustainable energy market for Colombians. Among the benefits offered by these contracts are:
- Generators and traders are able to set, in advance, the price at which they will buy or sell energy on the stock exchange, and can also negotiate directly with companies with which they can not do so otherwise, due to credit risk restrictions.
- For large consumers of energy, it works as an alternative when negotiating their energy contracts with the marketer, and allows them to secure the price of the energy part that has not been covered at a fixed price.
- The financial sector can expand the portfolio of products offered to its industrial and energy sector customers, and it is also a new investment alternative in an asset that is not correlated with other existing assets in the sector, which allows portfolio diversification.
