How to get maximum value from power plant hedging

Dynamic hedging is becoming more common among plant operators

Power plant

The primary source of financial uncertainty over the revenues of fuel-fired power plants is the volatility of prices in power, fuel and emissions allowances.

This static strategy is not the only possibility operators face; since liquidity in wholesale markets has increased, dynamic hedging is becoming common practice.
