In 2021 Centrica Energy Trading has delivered satisfactory financial performance underpinned by increased customer activity, high people engagement scores and a robust financial and liquidity management framework.
2021 started with a newly formed management team (formed in the summer of 2020) implementing an ambitious strategy focussed on renewable energy trading to actively push towards Europe attaining net-zero status by 2050. Market conditions in 2021 drove higher demand from our customers and partners to provide products and solutions to help them manage long-term budget security. The satisfactory results delivered demonstrate that our renewable energy trading platform and robust risk management framework positions us as a reliable partner for our customers looking to accelerate and secure their investments in the renewable energy. Our results demonstrate strong delivery on our strategic plan, giving us full confidence that we are well on our way to meeting our strategic ambitions of being the best renewable energy trader in Europe and a global player.
