Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive overview of the energy sector and its physical and financial markets

The first in a series of study guides for GARP's Certificate in Energy Risk Management program

The Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) created the Certificate in Energy Risk Management to provide a practical understanding of the risks inherent in the energy industry and to offer a comprehensive overview and analysis based on the everyday practice of energy risk management in the global physical and financial energy markets.

Foundations of Energy Risk Management is an integral part of GARP's Certificate in Energy Risk Management—a rigorous, practice-driven, comprehensive program developed to meet the needs of today's dynamic global energy markets and the highly skilled professionals working with energy—and the first in a series of books focusing on energy risk management.

Developed from in-depth insights and expert advice from internationally recognized leaders in energy risk management, this book familiarizes the reader with the language of the energy industry, energy trading, and risk management, and covers:

  • The steps in the commodity cycle

  • The global markets for various energy products—crude oil, refined products, natural gas, LNG, and electricity/power

  • The various risk types inherent to the energy business

  • The risk management tools available to energy companies . . . and much more

Each chapter contains practical, real-life examples and explanations of energy-related events to explain the "science" and "business" of energy. Tables, graphs, and diagrams reveal the complex path energy takes to reach the consumer, the risks relating to various energy commodities, and the role of the commodity markets. For anyone working in the energy industry or interested in energy, it is essential to have a firm understanding of the physical and financial energy markets, how these two markets interrelate, and what risks are involved in each. Foundations of Energy Risk Management helps in achieving this goal.

It puts you in a better position to excel in GARP's Certificate in Energy Risk Management.

Completing the Certificate in Energy Risk Management is not only an accomplishment, but the right step in career development.

Book News Annotation:

If projections prove to be accurate, from 2008 to 2030 global economic growth should average over 4.1 percent per year and energy demand will increase about 1.8 percent per year. These increases contain elements of significant risk, given the current energy situation and volatility in both markets and demand. This significant new study closely considers the ramifications of those risks and places them in the contexts of the energy use cycle, the political and economic risks inherent in the cycle, regulatory considerations, world energy use, sources of major sources of energy (including natural gas, coal, oil and hydroelectricity), the physical markets and the spot markets. It also explains the organization of financial markets for energy, financial derivatives, basis risk, speculation arbitrage, hedging, the relationship between the physical and financial prices, and emission trading in the US and the European Union. The result is an excellent resource for policymakers and energy industry leaders. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
