The Sales unit within Transaction and Position Management (TPM) is responsible for the management of the Sales Positions for Dutch Power and Dutch, German and French Gas. The team acts as the interface between Trading and Sales, delivering prices to Sales, receiving contract information from Sales and calculating the financial settlement between Trading and Sales based on the stored contract data and the received usage data. TPM has a central place in the value chain and therefore has contact with many departments within the Vattenfall Group – the different Sales Units, Trading Desks, Pricing Teams, Risk Analysis and Reporting, Finance Groups and IT.

On a daily basis incoming usage data is retrieved and validated. In case of incompleteness or inconsistencies this is investigated together with the IT department and the grid companies.
On a monthly basis the team calculates the financial settlement between Sales and Trading, combining the usage data of the customer base with the stored contract and price data.
On a regular basis the team performs analysis on the Sales Position to ensure that maximum value can be captured from our customer positions. This includes comparing the long term forecast with the usage data and preparing plans to reduce the difference. Other examples are profile development, imbalance analysis, etc.
