Formula prices: fundamentals
In recent years, considerable price fluctuations have developed in the energy market, which no longer allow for a long-term, fixed calculation basis for energy costs. This is why formula price contracts have become established in the past, which limit risks and often exclude them altogether.
In the context of continuous supply flows, formula contracts offer the following advantages: Risk minimisation is automatically achieved through quantity splitting of price setting. Constant price negotiations are a thing of the past. Purchases at the "wrong time" are impossible. In accordance with the contract details, payments can be reduced to a weekly basis (four due dates per month) or monthly basis (one total invoice).
