Trading

ENGIE’s UK-based trading function provides the market interface for the company’s portfolio of generation and retail assets in the UK. Our team of traders, originators and analysts hedge the commodity exposures of the business via wholesale energy markets and transact via brokers, power exchanges and auctions as well as directly with a large number of trading counterparties.

The team also deploys its expertise for external clients, such as thermal and renewable energy assets, retailers and utilities. The team has the ability to structure tailor-made solutions to complex energy management needs.  

Trading in the GB power and gas markets is a 24/7 operation.

The traders are backed up by a team of market and trading analysts, providing a wide range of technical and fundamental analysis of near and far term energy markets.
