Risk Management

‘Risk management’ refers to the process in which energy risks are analysed and subsequently mitigated. Energy cost volatility presents a significant risk to consumers, affecting company performance, investment and market positioning. Any volatility flows straight to the bottom line; without managing this risk companies face being left adrift in the evolving global marketplace. Energy consumers are now having to align their energy risk management strategies with wider Net Zero strategies. This multi-layer risk is a significant new challenge and is going to shape corporate decision-making for decades to come.

Managing Energy Risks

The energy generation and legislative landscape are changing rapidly as the economy transitions towards Net Zero. Recent legislation such as the UK’s Net Zero emissions law and the Paris Agreement have encouraged both companies and governments to begin making this transition. Significant consumers of energy are at the forefront of this change as they try to navigate an evolving marketplace, whilst satisfying customer, investor and supply chain demands. This presents opportunities but also comes with risks; this changing landscape can expose your business to financial loss, supply problems, legislative issues and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) scrutiny.

As fossil fuel assets are replaced with renewable generation methods, consumers will have to adapt to more volatile trading conditions and less price stability. Many consumers suffer from a lack of risk governance and passive energy risk strategies; the evolving global commodity market however requires a proactive strategy that accounts for multi-layer risk.
