Abdulaziz July 19, 2020
  • SEC operates around a common pool (spot market) for wholesale trading in physical electricity
  • The ‘spot price’ reflects physical supply and demand across the SEC
  • In parallel to the spot market, Retailers and Generators enter into contracts to buy and sell electricity at an agreed price
    • This parallel market enables retails to manage the risk of volatile wholesale prices for their customers
