Coping with extreme market volatility

The power and gas markets are under extreme and unprecedented pressure, rising energy prices, uncertainty about pipeline supply, increased demand in Asia and closure of nuclear and coal fired power plants across Europe.

The 2021 peak shifted the scenario significantly in Europe, imposing new challenges to trading executives and trading companies.

ETCSEE 2022, that took place in Budapest on 15 - 16 June, provided you with a deep dive into the developments of markets in Central & South Eastern Europe, discussing what strategies have been put in place, what are the lessons learned and what the future looks like.

What you discovered in Budapest

  • Did the markets prove that they are appropriately set to withstand extreme conditions?

  • What kind of analyses and conclusions have been made?

  • What regional developments should we keep an eye on?

  • What are the main price drivers for both power and gas for the short and long term?

  • What are the trends and changes in the regional CPPA market?


The 2022 Programme
