This seminar is designed for regulated and deregulated energy managers, structuring professionals, and anyone else who wants to gain a better understanding of the concepts, methods, and tools energy managers use to structure and price profitable energy/power agreements; how to monetize energy & electric power assets; structure retail power transactions; and increase profits.
This program covers a wide range of energy and power transactions and assets illustrating common principles used across the energy industry. Many powerful energy/power structuring and asset trading techniques are explored, with examples of how these techniques can be applied to many real-world energy transactions and assets. This course also addresses retail electricity pricing structures, RFP proposals, full requirements contract structures, the issues faced by providers of last resort, switching/migration risk, power purchase agreements and a number of other topics. This course is unique in that it addresses both the deterministic intrinsic value and the hidden ''insurance extrinsic value'' associated with complex agreement structures, energy assets and other opportunities.
A laptop is required with any version of EXCEL.
Among those who will benefit from this seminar include energy and electric power executives; attorneys; government regulators; traders & trading support staff; marketing, sales, purchasing & risk management personnel; accountants & auditors; plant operators; engineers; and corporate planners. Types of companies that typically attend this program include energy producers and marketers; utilities; banks & financial houses; industrial companies; accounting, consulting & law firms; municipal utilities; government regulators and electric generators.
