For some time, market prices have experienced large fluctuations. Therefore, it was important for Samaqua, an organization owned by a number of utility companies, that their new partner in the electricity market could ensure fixed electricity prices. Fixed prices without Samaqua having to speculate about timing the purchase. They chose Energi Danmark, and a large part of Samaqua's electricity agreement is based on Energi Danmark's Index model. The model eliminates speculation and ensures predictable prices. This means that even if electricity prices rise sharply, Samaqua can control its costs.
Another reason for choosing Energi Danmark was Samaqua’s large ambitions in relation to the green transition. Several of the 14 utility companies forming Samaqua have electricity consumption that is flexible or will be flexible in the future.
Analyzing and preparing the flexible consumption is off to a good start. When electricity prices are very high during certain hours, Samaqua can make its flexible capacity available and receive payment from Energi Danmark. This is possible because Energi Danmark is balance responsible towards Energinet.dk.
The collaboration between Samaqua and Energi Danmark has also meant extra earnings for Samaqua’s members who can issue certificates (GoO’s) from their own production of electricity.
