Energy Trading at ESB

ESB Trading works on behalf of the company to maximise the value output of our generation fleet over a two year horizon. We manage the margin associated with ESB’s portfolio.

Managing Risk

Our team trades 24 hours a day, across multiple commodities in several key markets. Those markets all have unique characteristics, which, in turn, mean handling different currencies and regulatory regimes. As a result, the ESB Trading team is constantly dealing with high levels of risk in a very fast paced environment.

Managing these risks and seeking out the opportunities is crucial in deciding how and when to lock in the maximum value or reduced risk for ESB and its stakeholders.

Transparency Drive

EU Regulation 1227/2011 on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT) has directed generators to make information publicly available on the current status and availability of their generation assets.
