Power: how to manage cost risks?

The vast majority of companies and institutions close power contracts based on nominal plans for their businesses.

A small minority prefers to find out what's the proposed contract response considering scenarios - for example 70%, 85% and 100% of their nominal plan.

The vast majority do very well for "business as usual" but not so much for "stormy situations". 

The small minority, on the other hand, ends up performing very well under normal conditions but achieves good results for situations of reduced activity.

What do you prefer? What do you find most interesting and convenient for your case? If you would like to explore new approaches, please feel free to contact me. You will certainly be surprised!
