Energy trading

Business Area Markets is the commercial heart of Vattenfall's wholesale and sourcing activities where all asset optimisation and trading activities are centralised.

We are recognised as one of the leading energy trading companies in the European energy industry. We offer reliable, responsible and flexible access to all relevant commodity wholesale markets.

In short, our mission is to optimise and hedge the company's generation plants and customer portfolios. We sell the electricity output of Vattenfall's power plants and buy electricity for our customers on the European electricity wholesale market.

We also handle the sourcing of fossil fuels, biomass and carbon credits for Vattenfall and third parties, and optimise and manage risk and flexible assets of Vattenfall's fuel portfolio.

We create additional value by performing proprietary trading within the risk mandate that is set by Vattenfall's Board of Directors.
