Price Stabilization Fund

The Price Stabilization Fund (PSF-NCRE) is a Private Investment Fund managed by BCI Asset Management in consultation with Antuko.

Objectives

Operation

<<Prev Next>>
1.

The Price Stabilization Fund (PSF) is a Private Investment Fund managed by BCI Asset Management in consultation with Antuko. Its equity comes from private investor contributions.

The PSF acts as a broker on the domestic electricity market by purchasing energy from Non-Conventional Renewable Energy (NCRE) producers and reselling this energy to unregulated (industry, mining, commercial chains, etc.) or regulated customers (electrical distributors) of the system, or directly on the spot energy market.

Through this brokerage work, the PSF provides hedging solutions for both NCRE producers and energy purchasers.

2.

The PSF is bound by strict investment and risk control policies which are implemented and supervised on an ongoing basis by BCI Asset Management.

The solvency of the PSF is guaranteed by its equity and by insurance policies which provide coverage for the most adverse climatic scenarios.

Antuko is in charge of the commercial management of the fund, namely procuring energy contracts and finding purchasers.

3.

In the first stage of the PSF an energy purchase portfolio is created, diversified by technologies (solar, wind, hydro, and biomass) as well as geographic area and counterparty.

By aggregating various technologies, the PSF manages to eliminate the effect of the seasonal nature of each technology and achieve an energy matrix with a stable production profile.

The PSF offers to purchase the production of each NCRE project, assuming the risk of variability.

4.

In the second stage, the PSF will resell the purchased energy on two possible markets:

  • Unregulated or regulated energy market customers: industry, mining, commerce, or electrical distributors. These will be the primary customers of the PSF, representing approximately 2/3 of its sales. For this type of customer, the PSF must adapt to their demand and in most cases sell fixed blocks of power.
  • Spot Market, in which all electricity producing companies participate. In this market the SPF will unload the rest of the purchased energy (1/3) at the hourly Marginal Cost.
5.

Through its brokerage and risk management, the PSF will invigorate the domestic electricity market by providing solutions for both producers and purchasers of energy:

  • Producers sell their actual production to the PSF at a minimal fixed price that is set beforehand. Thanks to this they have a predictable and certain long-term source of income which will enable them to obtain financing from banks and continue to develop;
  • Purchasers have access to ERNC projects without having to assume the seasonal risk of these technologies, as the PSF offers energy in fixed blocks of power and at a fixed price which is known long-term.
6.

Income from the PSF comes from the sale of energy either at a fixed price to unregulated and regulated customers, or at marginal cost on the spot market.

The primary expense of the fund consists of the purchase of energy from the ERNC producers which comprise its portfolio, at a fixed price (the fund has very low administrative, accounting, and audit expenses).

The resulting profit, which is calculated as the difference between the purchase price and the sales price of the energy, is distributed equally among the producers and the investors.

This is a simplified explanation of the operation of the PSF. For further information please contact Antuko or BCI Asset Management. Under no circumstances is this information intended to be considered sales information or a solicitation for investment.
