In the opinion of many energy consumers, signing a contract with the seller for the next year involves determining its price. However, that doesn't have to be true. For a large customer, signing an energy sales contract involves selecting a business partner for the future period and defining the general terms of cooperation. The energy price is determined only after the implementation of subsequent purchase tranches.
Loudly in the network about "low", exchange prices of energy listed on the SPOT market in January 2023. (low from the perspective of the prices we faced in 2022). A relatively attractive price level favors entrepreneurs whose energy sales contracts enable the settlement of energy purchases taking into account the current exchange prices (the so-called Day-Ahead Market).
Settlement taking into account exchange prices, both futures market and DAM (SPOT) prices, is an increasingly popular form of settlement of energy sold to large electricity and gas consumers.
Why is it worth not delaying the signing of such an agreement for 2024? Because we gain more than we lose. The main advantage is the ability to react immediately to the market situation. When the time is right, the purchase can be made immediately. In order to take full advantage of this arrangement, it is important to have enough time to catch the price opportunities that occur throughout the year. Therefore, the beginning of the year is a good time to look around the market and choose electricity and gas suppliers for the next year.
We encourage entrepreneurs not to postpone the decision to choose a supplier for 2024 for too long. Now is a good time to choose the best offer on the market and be ready to make purchases. Especially when the dynamics of change is what the market has accustomed us to in 2022.
