RWE Supply & Trading Switzerland’s Structured Origination group conducts complex transactions for third parties such as banks, other utilities, or industrial customers in all energy commodities.
Long-term sales and supply contracts
Commodity market volatility can have a significant impact on the profitability and viability of commodity-intensive businesses. We can provide you with long-term planning and price certainty through fixed priced, indexed or otherwise structured long-term contracts.
Structured commodity and hedging solutions
We tailor your commodity contracts to your specific needs. Examples can be the management of physical storage in oil or coal, where we buy the storage and release the working capital, while guaranteeing supply; or switching oil-indexed gas supply contracts to gas indexation; or providing physical volume balancing services.
Third party sourcing and sales
We provide sourcing and sales for other utilities or industrials, like coal supply, oil and oil product supply, including the management of logistics and all physical risks.
Acquisition hedges, energy financing and asset solutions
We work for energy finance teams in banks or other financial players to manage unwanted physical risks in their transactions. This service includes acquisition hedges for energy assets and securing the cash flows to enable leverage. We can offer physical supply and off-take contracts for project-financed energy assets, including electricity production, biomass, oil fields, gas fields, etc. We also arrange ancillary services such as operating or maintenance contracts in cooperation with other RWE asset companies.
We give our counterparties access to RWE’s commodity portfolio, RWE Supply & Trading’s logistical and physical commodity capabilities, and the expertise to structure and execute complex transactions, either for your own needs or as part of an energy acquisition or other transaction.
