Trading agreements for a brighter future - with Vishnu Aggarwal

Energy trading agreements come in all sorts of shapes and sizes - from simply priced physical and financial trading of energy products, to much more complex arrangements. Originators and traders need to understand market dynamics, potential risks and upsides, asset capabilities - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Watch the podcast.

On the latest episode of Modo: The Podcast, Vishnu Aggarwal (Deputy VP of Origination and Renewables, SmartestEnergy) joins Quentin to talk about his experiences of renewable energy origination and trading. Over the course of their conversation, they discuss:

  • The fascinating world of carbon markets and certifications - and how we can improve them.
  • The ins and outs of energy trading, and an explanation of how different types of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) work.
  • What Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) are, and why they’re so controversial.
  • The growing market for conscious suppliers. What does “100% renewable energy” look like for the end consumer? And how do we make it the norm?
  • And, of course, SmartestEnergy’s role in all of this.
