When it comes to bilateral contract management, tracking, auditing, reporting and optimising contracts can become extremely complex, even with just a few inter-utility agreements in place.

Short and long-term planning decisions, such as whether to utilise own generation, buy or sell energy, become almost impossible without a robust system in place. Functions such as transaction scheduling and settlement of trades should also be inherent in an energy trade/bilateral contract management system.

We’ve been involved in the field of international energy trading since 2002. We have extensive experience developing and implementing bilateral contract and energy trading systems tailored to utility/country requirements.

We've developed and implemented, and currently support the trading systems of a number of Southern African utilities. We've been involved with the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) since the early 2000s and have evolved the SAPP trading platform in collaboration with our Norwegian partners (NordPool Consulting) to include a Physical Forwards Market, Day-Ahead Market and Intra-day Market.

We’re the only company in Africa with an operational energy trading solution in place, with international energy trade volume of  > 1 220 GWH/month.

Energy Trading System

ETS

Our utility-focussed, web-based Energy Trading System (ETS) covers all aspects of the Southern African energy trading environment. It enables utilities to plan and decide on their self-generation vs. purchase decisions, optimise shorter term trades, and report on performance.

Renewable Energy Forecaster

REF

In Africa, as in many other parts of the world, renewable energy sources are becoming a sizeable portion of the total energy mix. This poses an enormous challenge for electricity grid operators who have to ensure there is enough generation to meet customers’ demand. In order to balance demand and supply and maximise the utilisation of the lower cost renewable generation assets, without compromising system stability and risk, highly accurate forecasting is essential.

Our Renewable Energy Forecaster accurately predicts renewable energy production. It is a stand-alone, cloud-based solution, and integrates seamlessly as an additional module to the latest version of our Energy Trading System to facilitate daily operational and annual planning.
