How Aquila Clean Energy uses risk management solutions to deliver outstanding performance in clean energy investments

Integrated trading and risk management optimizes assets in evolving market

Company Overview

Aquila Clean Energy EMEA is Aquila Group’s clean energy platform in Europe. Aquila Clean Energy develops, realises and operates clean energy assets using the technologies of solar, wind and battery storage. Currently, Aquila Clean Energy manages a portfolio with a total capacity of more than 10.3 GW.

With a local approach and through local teams of experts, Aquila Clean Energy initiates, develops, realises and operates what it identifies as essential assets along the entire value chain and over the lifetimes of the assets. Aquila Clean Energy has built a permanent presence in seven countries with over 200 employees, believing that local, on-site management teams are key to the company’s operations.

The challenge

To minimize risk and maximize returns for investors, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are utilized. Aquila Clean Energy’s Markets Management Group, led by the Head of Markets & Operations and supported by the Head of Power Hedging & Research and the Director of Nordic Power Markets, is the company’s team dedicated to providing hedge solutions to assets. The team also manages Guarantees of Origin (GOO) certificates. Aquila Clean Energy needed a robust energy trading risk management (ETRM) solution to control the production for operational and pipeline assets and to track PPA and GOO hedge activities. 

The solution

Aquila Clean Energy partnered with Hitachi Energy to implement its award-winning ETRM Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, TRMTracker. The cloud-based solution captures production, PPA, and GOO transactions, as well as monitors exposure.

Effective renewable asset risk management requires an ETRM solution to have comprehensive trade capture and reporting functionality. Generation, PPAs and wholesale derivative purchase and sale contracts can be complex to capture. TRMTracker can do this.

Using tailored workflows and reports, TRMTracker has increased Aquila Clean Energy’s visibility of exposures, contributed to the company proactively managing its asset risk profiles, and ultimately helped optimized returns for investors.

The result

In the power market, it has never been as important as it is today to have an effective ETRM system. Digitization, automation, and integration are key to handling the current global renewables build-out in which Aquila Clean Energy is participating in.

ETRM systems are critical for aggregating and managing the information needed to optimize assets in an evolving market, and Aquila Clean Energy has enhanced its risk management practices using Hitachi’s TRMTracker.

As a leading company for development and operation of clean energy assets in
Europe, which actively contributes to the energy transition, Aquila Clean Energy has significant production capacity in our project pipeline. To deliver optimal returns and support our substantial PPA and GOO growth, we need specialized energy trading and risk management functionality to have clear visibility of our asset exposures and revenues. Hitachi Energy’s TRMTracker is flexible, scalable, and easy to integrate into our IT landscape
