Still attractive: deregulated power prices (Brazil)

Firm electricity prices for future delivery are - so far - "well behaved".

They have not - until now - been contaminated by the escalation of commodity (energy) prices around the world.

Find out how to take advantage of this opportunity. 

Make sure to identify for your case - what and how to make it happen!

Dear Rafael,

I'm missing something in this.  The financial prices may be fixed, and so an attractive opportunity, given delivery.  But what are the delivery options?  If an LNG exporter wanted to supply Brazil, how would it work?

Firm prices for future delivery means that the power trader offered a firm price for the length of time requested by the energy user. Then the buyer has just a few days to lock the deal.

These firm prices for future delivery may vary on a daily basis. It is market driven! 

Today deregulated power prices for large energy users are offered at R$ 185/MWh (1 USD = R$ 5 roughly). There have already been at far above R$ 240/MWh in August 2021. 

The same concept applies to LNG. The exporter (as per your question) has to find buyers and then lock a deal.
