With a Spot agreement, your company achieves a variable price hour by hour. The price is determined in the Nordic energy market, Nord Pool, based on supply and demand. Nevertheless, your company must be willing to take risks, as there could be substantial price fluctuations on an hourly, daily, weekly and monthly basis, as the price is, among other things, determined based on the hydropower producers' resource situation and the load on the electricity cables. As such, the final electricity price will not be known when entering into a spot agreement, as the price is variable.
When entering into a spot price agreement, you will pay the actual spot price and there is no associated risk premium. Spot is a flexible product which can always be converted to any agreement type, applicable from the subsequent month.
