As a provider of integrated energy solutions, Galp Energia created in 2008 a department for trading electricity, which started its operations in September 2009. The purpose was to promote development of the market for electricity with a view to safeguarding the natural gas client base in an unregulated market environment. Galp Energia is one of the few companies in the world with a tri-fuel offer, including gas, electricity and oil products.
