About

InCommodities is a partner owned independent energy trader headquartered in Aarhus, Denmark.

Established in 2017, our company holds a significant physical market presence in the European power market, where we trade and optimize our portfolio 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

We consider ourselves to be a part of the green transition Europe is going through, where renewables deliver an increasing percentage of the total energy consumption.

We absorb the market risks associated with the unstable renewable energy sources and ensure stability of supply through the combination of deep market knowledge, trading, data science, meteorology and experience.
