The main task of the Trading Floor is to optimise the Group’s
portfolio of energy products, ensuring that clients’ demands are
met, whatever the circumstances. The trading floor also enables EFT
to respond to the ever-changing state of the region’s transmission
grid and production capacities. The Group manages its scheduling
through a centralized Trading Floor located in the Belgrade office.

scheduling and portfolio Management department makes schedules,
takes care about cross border capacities allocations and creates
paths in order to optimise the whole portfolio, managing different
energy sources, customers in different countries and cross border
energy flows and costs. Finally, the settlements department is
dealing with invoicing, preparing deal confirmations and statistics
necessary for all local companies within the Group.
