It all started with an idea. The strategy of Luneos, which offers a package of solutions providing enterprises with a comprehensive energy transformation and a significant reduction in energy costs and a carbon footprint, assumed the enrichment and supplementation of the product offer with the sale of ecological electricity. In order to turn the idea into a business, Luneos invited Arkadiusz Somnicki and Adam Wlizło from Enfree to cooperate, who have extensive, several years of experience in the field of broadly understood electricity trading, including the creation and development of business areas in energy trading companies.Czytaj dalej
- The increase in electricity purchase prices had a significant impact on the cost of furniture production - says Marek Szpręga, CFO of the Klose Group. And he continues: A year ago, market energy prices were at the level of PLN 400 / MWh. Unfortunately, the current rates, which have long exceeded the level of PLN 1000 / MWh, devastate the finances of many companies. Every day we receive information about the financial problems of other companies, including many from the furniture industry. In order to deal with the growing crisis, I decided to cooperate with Arek Somnicki and Adam Wlizło. The gentlemen from Enfree developed an energy purchase strategy for the Klose Group for the next two years.

The guaranteed maximum sale price will apply in the period from December 1, 2022 to the end of 2023. Some companies will also be able to benefit from compensation for energy purchases in the previous months of 2022. These are companies that signed a sales contract for 2022 after February 24, 2022 or those that signed a contract for 2022 earlier, but this contract allowed the purchase based on the so-called stock exchange model, under which at least one tranche of energy purchase for 2022 was made after February 24, 2022.
In the event that the entrepreneur is late with submitting the declaration by November 30, 2022, and provides the seller with the document at a later date, the purchase of energy at a preferential price will be made from the next month (e.g. entrepreneurs who submit a declaration in December may count on the application of the maximum price in settlements from January 2023).
The cPPA (Corporate Power Purchase Agreements) contracts entered the Polish power industry's salons just a few years ago. The first ones willing to take advantage of the contracts were market leaders who created the trend of co-responsibility for the environment, as well as entrepreneurs for whom it was important to guarantee a fixed purchase price for at least a few consecutive years. These contracts are usually concluded for a period of 5-10 years, which results from the requirements set by RES producers (by concluding such contracts, RES producers allow financing of the sources being built, mainly photovoltaic and wind farms).Czytaj dalej
How is it with these energy prices? Buy energy for 2023 now or wait until autumn to buy energy with the hope of lowering prices? Make a purchase at a predetermined price or choose a pricing mechanism based on stock indices? Should you decide to buy energy based on long-term cPPA contracts or decide to invest in your own energy generation sources?
The answer to all questions is: it depends. On a macro scale, it depends on geopolitics. Prices of coal, gas, emission allowances. The situation on European markets and the increasing uncertainty of raw material supplies. EU or local political decisions accelerating or inhibiting the development of the energy sector. On a micro scale, it depends on the situation of a specific company. Its business profile, current and expected financial situation, market awareness as well as the risk appetite of its management.
