Most commercial energy buyers are familiar with fixed-price energy contracts. You pay a fixed price for energy for a defined period of time. This strategy works best for businesses that require price certainty and budgetary control. 100% of the supply cost risk is on the supplier. Although it’s the more common method of energy procurement, it may not be the best strategy for every situation. Depending on your risk profile, Block and Index or a Hedging strategy may be a better fit.
