What is Energy Trading?
• A purchase or sale of energy, paper or physical, for consumption
or resale
• Purchase or sale for consumption or resale in the very short
time frame refers to spot energy trading; energy trading in the
future refers to futures/forwards
• Why Trade? Energy Trading results in realization of gains from
trade – there is no different from other trading of commodities
or goods
• Examples include: oil, gas, power, coal, emissions, weather, etc.;
all these commodities can be traded
• We can trade products and their derivatives; derivatives are
instruments that derive their value from the underlying product

or block-based forward market for the next day
• Futures or forward market is trading for some
remote time period

Power Marketing and
Energy Trading Explosion
• Utilities, financial houses, marketers, brokers,
generating entities, and speculators are
buying, selling, and swapping power/energy
on an ever-increasing scale
• The total volume of trade is multiples of the
value of the underlying commodity
• Power marketing / brokering has grown
tremendously since the start of deregulation

Move from the Zonal To FNM – Nodal
Market
NP15
ZP26
SP15
• Full Network Model (All constraints
• No intra-zonal constraints enforced
• Internal Congestion Zones –
Constraints enforced between zones
enforced)
• Locational Marginal Pricing at each node

Why Nodal?
• Efficiency: minimization of production cost
– System-wide, incentive-compatible
• Advanced locational signal for buyers and
sellers to match next day needs and supplies
• Economic signal (LMP) to Gens and Demand
Response while protecting load
• Congestion risk management (CRR/FTR/TCC)
and transmission planning

Financial Instruments
• Virtual Trading: trade DAM vs. RTM
– Virtual Supply (Financial Generator): sell DA buy
RT
– Virtual Demand (Financial Load): buy DA sell RT
• Congestion Revenue Rights (aka FTR or TCC)
– Buy or sell congestion between two nodes
– Buy in monthly/seasonal, settle in DAM

Virtuals as Purely Financial Instruments
• Used to capture the price difference between
DAM and RTM at a location
• If the location price in DAM is expected to be
greater than RTM, then an Inc at that location
would be the correct tool
• If the location price in DAM is expected to be
less than RTM, then a Dec at that location
would be the correct tool

FTR Properties
• Financial settlement, no physical delivery
• Can be acquired centrally or from another
participant
• Can be bought or sold b/w any two pricing
locations (aka injection and withdrawal
points, or source and sink) defining a path
• Can cover on-peak or off-peak
• FTR payoff can be either positive or negative

24
Financial Perspective
• Hedgers: offset the expected congestions
• Speculators: look for most profitable paths
• Look at FTRs as a stand-alone financial
instrument
• Purchase Forward Contract for congestion
difference at a set price
• Delivery is based upon DAM price differences
Copyright © 2012 by Active Power Investments LLC

25
Financial Perspective cont.
• Goal of FTR spec bids: Buy the FTR in the
auction at less than the total amount of the
congestion revenue which will be paid to the
FTR holder throughout the auction period
• These financial instruments could be thought
of as investments that get future “earnings”

FTR Holder Risks
• FTR Holder purchased an FTR with
anticipation of congestion happening in one
direction
• Actual system conditions can change from
auction assumptions
• System conditions and DA market clearing can
be different than holder’s assumptions

Stress Testing
• Focus on potential sources of risk that
– Impact the portfolio seriously
– Have not occurred in the recent past
• No standard/scientific way to reliably measure risk
– Scenarios tailored to the portfolio
• Stress testing looks for the worst outcome in contrast
to VaR which looks at extreme movements in price
distribution
• Stress testing is more effective when the portfolio has
fewer sources of risk

Why invest in power nodal markets?
• New less efficient markets, higher spreads
• Higher barriers to entry (talent, data, analysis,
process, ISO / regulatory compliance)
• Uncorrelated with equity, debt, FX, real estate
• No to very low correlation with other energy
commodities such as oil or NG
• Multiple independent power markets –
diversification of opportunities

Key Points and Conclusions
• Virtual Offers/Bids
– Prediction of RT price with some degree of
accuracy is a must to achieve the goal
– Diversification across pricing points is a key factor
– Offers financial participants risk premiums when
arbitraging DA – RT price differences

Key Points and Conclusions
• FTR –Congestion patterns change over time
– Short-term congestion is harder to predict
(month-to-month, day-to-day)
– Long-term congestion may be more predictable
but does change based on new
generation/transmission construction (or
retirements)
– FTRs are a tool that can provide profitable
opportunities for financial participants
