Workshop Priogen
A day at Priogen – Energy trading game
For an independent trading company such as Priogen, understanding how certain events influence supply and demand of electricity is vital in forecasting the price accurately. During this case, the students will first take the role of a Priogen research team and determine which way the power price in Germany will likely move.
Once the research team has determined the expected price move as a result of certain events, it is up to the trading desks to implement this knowledge. The students will take the role of a Priogen trading desk and trade intraday power (power with delivery less than a day away). The task is to interpret market information quickly and react in the best way given the nature of the event, the market, and the company position. Intraday power is a highly volatile product, so you should see plenty of price movement! The students will be responsible for making the correct trading decisions, managing their position and risk, and ensuring that their position is back to zero before the market closes.
