Optimus Energy is the first energy asset management company in Greece that provides physical and financial optimization of renewable energy assets operating in energy markets in Greece and the broader South-East European region.
Optimus Energy specializes in maximizing the value of renewable energy sources by trading electricity directly in the power market. We pioneer the Greek electricity market and have significant experience with the optimization and aggregation of renewable energy generation.
The company was established in 2017 following the European Commission’s “State aid guidelines for environmental protection and energy 2014-2020” and their transposition to the Greek Law 4414/2016. Under the recent Greek Law 4414/2016, producers with new renewable plants (signing a Contract for Differences with LAGIE from year 2017 and on) shall be compensated by trading their electricity directly in the power market, through a feed-in-premium scheme, and they shall be balance responsible for the uncertain and variable production of their assets. Electricity from renewable sources shall no longer be promoted by risk-free subsidization schemes (feed-in-tariffs).
To market their electricity, renewable producers may conclude a contract with an aggregator, in other words a direct marketer which assumes all market and balancing responsibilities on their behalf.
Optimus Energy is here exactly for this scope: The first aggregator in Greece!
The company provides a clear contractual framework with purchase of energy at fixed and/or indexed prices to seize market opportunities and secure market revenues for renewable producers.
Market exposure and balance responsibilities are left for Optimus Energy’s experts! To optimize and balance renewable production, we rely on in-house market analysts, meteorologists and academics, as well as on advanced forecasting tools, market simulation models and risk management strategies. Our superior market access, innovative management tools, state-of-the-art processes and around-the-clock availability enable our customers to extract the full value of their renewable assets.
Optimus Energy’s operates its headquarters in Thessaloniki and a branch office in Athens.
At Optimus Energy we want to be the best at what we do and to provide our clients with the OPTIMAL services in the electricity trading sector. To pursue this, we have built our company culture and corporate values around a simple and yet great goal:
“Optimize your future”
