Wind profile power derivatives

The wind power products are a variant of the daily and weekly base contracts. The only difference being that they are settled according to a pre-defined Wind Profile instead of according to a Flat profile. That is, at settlement each hour of the period will have a weight according to the values of the wind profile for each hour of the period, instead of having an equal weight in all the hours of the period.

The delivery periods of the wind power derivatives would be:

  • Day-Ahead
  • Week-End
  • Week-Ahead.

The Wind Profile will vary according to short-term wind production forecasts provided by the professional third party METEOBIT, and it will be published in MEFF´s webpage prior to accepting registration of any transactions on such Contracts.

The wind power profile consists of defining a percentage for each hourly value for each relevant period (DA, WE or WA) of the aggregated national wind power forecasted relative to the total hourly wind power forecasted for that period (DA, WE or WA).

The profiles will have 24 (23/25) values for the DA product, 48 (47/49) for the WE and 168 (167/169) values for the WA product, and the sum of all the values for a given delivery period will be 100%.
