Case Study - Portfolio Risk Analysis

Energy Edge operates a combined market forecasting and portfolio risk service. This service has been offered to clients across the energy industry to establish portfolio risk profiles and to formulate trading strategies. Generators, retailers and energy users have benefited from the Portfolio Risk analysis process to achieve superior financial outcomes with control over their financial risk.

The Portfolio Analysis consulting provided by Energy Edge has delivered a framework for more reliable and scientific decision making at some of Australia’s leading energy companies. The scenario analysis has enabled a formal risk quantification framework for managing significant environmental, energy and electricity exposures, and a transparent approach for selecting the best candidate amongst energy procurement alternatives.

Case Study - Due Diligence and Advisory Service

Energy Edge was engaged by a government authority to provide advice on the energy contract portfolios involved in the restructure of large generator corporations. Energy Edge was able to use its proprietary systems to load vast numbers of contracts and to provide key statistics to support the restructure decision-making process. Energy Edge brought its trading and risk management expertise to the project to interpret a complex and diverse contract portfolio and to offer suggestions on equity in the restructure process. The experience of the team enabled timely reporting on contract valuation and risk policy implications under alternative restructure scenarios.
