An energy trading and risk management (ETRM) system is a piece of software that powers energy trading, risk management, and back office operations for energy industry players. It can be used by power utilities and producers, energy commodity traders like oil traders and federal power administrations.

A good ETRM system allows its users to:

  • Make well-informed buy/sell decisions based on real-time and predictive analytics that deliver market insights
  • Keep the portfolio within the defined limits and control risk exposure
  • Seamlessly coordinate with energy transport service providers thanks to smooth integrations
  • Focus on strategic activity by automating portfolio management workflows and enabling straight-through processing
  • Facilitate data exchange across trade floor, operations, credit, contract and accounting functions via a user-friendly interface
  • Mitigate the risk of bias and human error negatively impacting trading decisions
  • Track the whole deal life cycle
  • Maintain and streamline regulatory compliance

Here are the five ways an energy trading solution can improve operational efficiency and profitability:

  • Straight-through processing. A solution can automatically process a transaction without manual intervention, from capture to settlement
  • Multi-commodity support. A system can support a variety of commodities, from gas and power to refined products and derivatives, in multiple currencies, all within a single customizable interface
  • Data exchange. With the help of API-powered integrations, data can flow smoothly and securely within the company. Third-party integrations, in turn, allow for accurate real-time trend analysis and projections
  • Monitoring and reporting. A software solution can automatically pull data from multiple sources, organize and visualize it in customizable dashboards, and generate reports based on templates
  • Risk management. Comprehensive data aggregation and powerful risk analytics improve risk control, limiting exposure and protecting the portfolio

Technology solutions can enhance carbon trading in the five following ways:

  • Data management and analytics. AI-powered solutions can derive actionable insights from swaths of market, emission and transaction data. At the same time, a software solution can organize and track data on project details, emissions and carbon credit
  • Regulatory compliance. A software solution can streamline reporting by automatically collecting and organizing emission statistics and other compliance data
  • Carbon trade. Technology powers trading platforms that connect buyers and sellers in compliance markets like the European Emissions Trading System (EETS) and voluntary markets
  • Monitoring. Software solutions can continuously collect measurement data on emitted greenhouse emissions and analyze trends in their reduction
  • Fraud prevention. Smart contracts can make carbon credit transactions more secure, preventing fraud and double-counting while powering full operational transparency and accountability
