Viviana has over ten years’ experience in commercial roles at financial commodity exchanges. She has amassed detailed knowledge of power and carbon markets as well as a deep understanding of spot and derivatives trading and clearing. She is currently responsible for commercial strategies related to the integration of renewables in the European Power Derivatives segment.
In particular Viviana focuses on how PPAs and increasing merchant risk are affecting the hedging needs of EEX members and the wider players in renewable energy industry. She leads marketing efforts related to the available risk management products for PPAs and spearheads initiatives to develop new exchange-based products that can further de-risk PPAs. As a result, long-term hedging of PPAs via financial electricity futures has already begun in the EEX Spanish Power market.
