    KyStrategy - Energy Purchasing Strategies

    KyStrategy software calculates potential cash-flow distributions for different energy purchasing strategies. The model is developed as support tool for sales departments for utilities/energy companies, for advisors, and for individual end-users.  Next to the more common qualitative judgement, KyStrategy quantifies the potential impact of the most common sourcing strategies.

    Inputs for the strategy tool are:

    • Customer profile (for gas on daily basis, for power on hourly basis)
    • Monte Carlo Price simulations
    • A purchasing strategy (see below)
    • Already purchased positions (including price)

    Multiple possibilities to purchase power and gas

    The potential distribution of the following sourcing strategies can be calculated:

    • Fixed Price
    • Floating Price (daily spot)
    • Average Forward Price (purchase based on an average forward price)
    • Split Purchase (purchase based on pre-defined days, independent from the price development)
    • Stop-loss (purchase where part of the total volume is purchased when the increase of the contract price exceeds a pre-determined threshold)
    • Collar (purchase with floors and/or caps)
    • All possible combinations from above
