additional remarks In the course of this lecture, students gain deep insights into the value chain of energy trading. Based on the ongoing development of European and global energy markets, it is illustrated how energy markets provide, both theoretically and practically, the fundament for risk management of company portfolios from the perspective of energy produces, consumers and traders. A particular focus is on the grid-bound energy sources electricity and gas, but the lecture is further supplemented by references to coal, crude oil and emission certificates. On top, there is an excursion to the SWM trading floor. Major Contents: Tasks and role of energy trading, trading organizations and market participants, market places and trading products; Formation of market prices and its analysis; Tasks and methods of risk management (credit, liquidity and price risks); Structuring of cross-commodity portfolios of an utility company; Trading and hedging strategies; Valuation of flexibility.
