Danske Commodities IN THE UK

With a growing share of renewables in the UK's energy mix, new types of risks and opportunities arise. Danske Commodities is a market leader in a number of Europe’s renewable driven markets. We can help increase your revenue from renewable energy production.


For renewable asset owners of ROC, FiT or CfD eligible assets, who need to transfer risk and operational burdens such as forecasting, metering data management and scheduling away from their projects, Danske Commodities offers attractive Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and Balancing Agreements with a duration of up to 15 years.

Being present in 39 countries worldwide, managing more than 5,700 MW of renewable generation capacity - and having one of Europe’s most experienced short-term trading desks - enables us to effectively manage our partners’ risks and optimise the value of their assets.


Danske Commodities enables small-medium sized producers and large consumers to identify and maximise the commercial value of their flexible assets arising from increased market price volatility, driven by rising renewables penetration in the electricity system.

Our market knowledge and global trading experience enables our partners to profit from the emergence of a tradable, volatile, short-term market in the UK.


For customers who need protection against market volatility, Danske Commodities offers risk management tools that enable stabilisation of cash flows for up to five years ahead. Our experience enables us to deliver valuable advice and customised risk solutions for our customers.


Danske Commodities is an international energy trading and services company founded in 2004 and based in Aarhus, Denmark. We operate in 39 countries globally, creating new opportunities in every market we enter.

We combine trading expertise, intelligent data and unparalleled market access, and provide customers with energy trading-related services such as asset, consumption, balancing and risk management – often via customer-tailored products.

The offshore wind farm Beatrice off the coast of Scotland will be operational in 2018/2019.


Danske Commodities has signed a 15-year Power Purchase agreement to handle all forecasting and trading for 294 MW, equivalent to 50% of the park’s production. The PPA is Danske Commodities’ first long-term balancing contract in the UK market, and it builds on our experience in structuring PPAs in several European markets.


“We are pleased to have signed a PPA agreement for 50% of the Beatrice Offshore wind farm marking another positive milestone for the development. Danske Commodities structured a flexible and competitive solution that met our needs and we look forward to working with them as the project progresses,” says Steve Wilson.
