Power to
the People

In an increasingly dynamic energy market we build real-time software solutions for the trade and distribution of electricity, gas, coal, freight and emissions. Thereby, we improve the provision of energy and facilitate the transition to a greener future.

Towards a Smarter System

The liberalisation of markets and the transition towards renewables has turned the EU energy sector into a dynamic and decentralised market. Applying our skills in data, trading, risk management and technology we build the tools that different players require. For instance, we set up algorithmic systems to support commodity traders. Further, we develop energy management services that support electricity providers, operators of smart grids as well as suppliers of gas and district heating.

Booming Trade in Energy

At the end of the 1990s the European Union began liberalising electricity markets, followed by gas markets and the introduction of emissions trading in 2005. These reforms set off a rapid growth in the number of players in power generation, energy distribution and commodities trading.

To serve this increasingly dynamic and complex market specialised exchanges such as the European Energy Exchange were established.

Our experience with capital markets, complex data flows, real-time technologies and analytics was a valuable asset to facilitate this expanding trade.

Together with analysts and traders we developed applications for their energy trading, risk and data management.

The Complexity of Renewables

Further complexity was added in the 2010s, when new incentives to expand renewables raised their share in the electricity mix. The growing importance of intermittent wind and solar power also increased the volatility in electricity generation.

Reacting to these developments, producers, suppliers and traders of energy increasingly bought and sold on short notice to limit surpluses and shortfalls. As a result, the volume of European intraday markets such as EPEX SPOT has more than tripled over the past ten years.

To cope with these challenges, we have developed platforms that automatically integrate and analyse distinct types of data such as wind forecasts, water levels of rivers and reservoirs as well as load and spare capacity of regional and international grids.

Finally, we have developed specialised analytics to meet data challenges faced by municipal utilities, grid operators and other players.

When AI Buys Electricity

Today, we increasingly work with clients who react to the booming intraday market by speeding up their order decisions through algorithmic trading.

These quantitative systems automatically evaluate data, exploit market information by using algorithms and artificial intelligence and decide to buy or sell energy.

Traders use these sophisticated tools to analyse a wide variety of information.

That gives them insights to run and stabilise the increasingly complex provision of energy.
