Danske Commodities challenges market inefficiencies with international trade, moving energy from where there’s more than needed to where it’s needed most.
As an agile energy trading house, we compete with established players to bring freedom of choice and fair energy prices to producers, suppliers and consumers.
We trade across borders, ensuring that energy markets stay competitive, efficient and balanced. Every minute of the day. Every day of the year.
We challenge. We compete. And then we repeat.
Benefitting from increased scale and automation, Danske Commodities reported a strong financial performance, delivering EBIT of EUR 50 million in 2019. We delivered these results in a transformative year for DC; we became part of Equinor, entered the US and onboarded promising, new business.
We're expanding our business model on a global scale. Through a new commercial function dedicated to global trading and market development, we're looking to expand DC's power, gas and certificates trading outside Europe, and offer optimisation, balancing and hedging services globally.
Our presence in the British renewables market grows, as we add three new long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with UK wind farms Hywind Scotland, Sheringham Shoal and Dudgeon for a total of 438 MW.
We’re teaming up with Danish NGO PlanBørnefonden to educate solar energy electricians in Benin. Through the project ‘Benin Shines’, we want to help provide access to renewable energy in one of the world's poorest countries by harvesting Benin’s most promising energy source – the sun.
In our new podcast series “Behind the Screens”, Danske Commodities’ in-house experts invite you into our offices to give you an insight look into the world of energy trading.
