February 13, 2019
The week-over-week appetite for risk followed a latitudinal pattern. ERCOT and PJM buyers demonstrated a moderate increase in index or flex products this week and their counterparts farther North in NEPOOL and NYISO were more interested in fixed prices. The volume priced was on the high side.
The risk appetite gauges above reflect the mix of fixed, flex and index volume that were priced on behalf of customer requests in the period. Total annual MWh priced represents 203,278,284 for customers with peak demand above 750 KWh.
