Because electricity cannot (economically) be stored, the power price on a given day is the direct result of fundamental supply and demand. For an independent trading company such as Priogen, understanding how certain events influence supply and demand is vital in forecasting the price accurately. During this case, you will be presented with various situations where you will be responsible for assuming one of two roles: first, the role of a Priogen research team; and second, the role of a Priogen trading team.
During the research case, you will be given numerous scenarios influencing the European power market, for which you must determine whether the German power price will go up, down, or stay the same for next week, and provide justification for this choice. During the trading case, you will be responsible for deciding whether to sell or buy based on rapidly changing market events.
