Entrepreneurs who want to purchase energy for 2023 are currently receiving (early February 2022) offers at the level of PLN 750-800 / MWh. Such prices are offered primarily to larger companies. Smaller entities must take into account prices of up to PLN 1,000 / MWh. Before we sit down at the negotiating table with energy sellers, we should find out what the current level of the electricity price results from. This knowledge will allow us to conduct effective negotiations with sellers and ultimately obtain a lower purchase price
Each of the sellers calculates energy prices based on their own contract pricing models. Due to the fact that the prices offered to companies often differ slightly, it can be assumed that a large number of sellers use valuation models based on current market (stock exchange) indicators.

Due to the fact that the real electricity demand curve in the case of most entities is very different from the profile of a "flat" band contract, sellers make energy valuations, e.g. at
The current valuation of the above-mentioned parameters, i.e. the risk of price volatility, seller margin, recipient profile and its balancing, in the case of larger electricity recipients it is at the level of PLN 60 / MWh.
The final price of energy also includes
In the case of larger entities, a well-prepared energy purchase strategy, taking into account the knowledge of price shaping mechanisms, translates into annual savings ranging from several to several dozen million zlotys. Regardless of the amount of energy consumed, we encourage every entrepreneur to carefully analyze their bill. Many years of experience in the area of electricity and natural gas sales prices gives us the basis to say that there is always room for price optimization.
