The way in which energy is supplied in European energy markets is rapidly changing. Electronic sales channels are becoming digital and thus transforming the way energy businesses and their end-customers interact. Increasing volumes of energy are being transacted through electronic sales portals and third-party electronic sales platforms. Digitalisation is also making it possible for energy to be bought and sold in smaller volumes, at shorter tenors and with greater frequency, signalling a move away from longer-term procurement towards active shorter-term hedging and optimisation. Energy businesses must adapt to these changes in wholesale trading or risk losing out to the competition.
