MEFF launches wind derivative contracts

24 November, 2016

 

MEFF, BME’s derivatives market, makes it available to its Members derivative contracts allowing producers of renewable energy to enjoy easier access to hedging instruments in the electricity forward market

 

As of 13 December, MEFF, the derivatives market of BME, will launch risk-hedging derivative contracts geared to producers of renewable energy.

The launch of these new products is the response to the growing interest among producers of renewable energy seeking access to specific hedging instruments in the electricity forward market.

MEFF will rely on the work of Market Makers, who will provide liquidity from the first trading session.

The launch of this wind energy contract, which helps producers of short-term renewable energy manage market-risk, coincides with the launch of the “Mini-Power” contract so as to accommodate derivative contracts of a smaller size than those already listed and thus allow a larger number of agents access to gain access.

The launch of these new products has been authorised by the Spanish stock market regulator, the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores (CNMV).
