Technology & Commodity Reports > Your E/CTRM Software is Important. Shouldn’t You Know More?

London, Prague, September 2014

For many people in our industry, ETRM or CTRM software is something to get frustrated about periodically if, for some reason, screens and reports don’t perform quickly enough or the software isn’t working properly. I know that when I was running the operations of a European power trading operation, the only time anyone showed any interest in the trading software was when there was a problem. And when there was a problem, boy, did I hear about it! Given that for almost everyone in a trading firm, the E/CTRM software is simply either often taken for granted or may even be the subject of derision and hatred, it’s hardly surprising that our vendor perception surveys show that many can only name a handful of software providers – if any.

Environmental Markets & Commodities Reports > China solar installations to reach 14GW

London, September 2014

China announced a set of incentives for photovoltaic projects connected to the local distribution grid last week, paving the way for a much more robust growth in the second half of this year, and beyond.
 
The National Energy Administration called on local authorities to identify projects in regions where electricity can be distributed to customers living nearby, according to a statement on the agency’s website. The subsidy scheme was expanded from a premium subsidy to include a feed-in tariff option, removing the risk of relying on an off-take contract.

Commodity Portfolio Management Research & Reports > CTRM Into the Future

London, September 2014

Increased complexity and the new demands being made on our industry – especially from regulators – has created a growing demand for E/CTRM systems: the category of software applications, architectures and tools that support the business processes associated with managing and trading commodity exposures and logistics. Trading, investing, and managing assets and liabilities in today’s complex commodity sectors requires sophisticated, robust, adaptable and scaleable technology – and never more so than now in the Big Data / Big Compliance era.

Power & Energy Commodity Reports > Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

London, 2 September 2014

The debate over which energy storage technology will prove to be the best in the long-term is woefully misguided. Many technologies have been tested in the field or been fully installed, but their real-world applications have created constant questions around a number of fixed themes: the three-points concern cost, technology, and potential environmental impact, as well as the need for specific regulation and end-of-life management.
