Optimization possibilities

The services auctioned can be used to capture intrinsic value driven by spreads on the forward curve as well as extrinsic value driven by spot volatility. In order to be able to make the most value out of this service auctioned, EnergyStock not only offered the services for a market based fee, but also gave the opportunity of altering the services to meet customers specific needs by offering additional injection and withdrawal capacity. Market parties highly appreciated being able to fine tune their flexibility needs to their specific demand and to capture maximum value with the services. For EnergyStock this was an important part of the success of the auction and the values of the auctioned services.
