EnergyFlow

EnergyFlow is a business process automation and management platform. It has been specifically designed to support day-to-day functions for electricity, environmental products, carbon and gas trading operations, reporting and settlements.

The platform can easily be extended to any retail or wholesale energy business activity using the built-in tools. It is a configurable, extensible and feature-packed solution.

The Problem:

Modern energy companies must operate in several markets at once. These markets require operational management for the preparation, validation, bidding and settlement of complex physical energy bids and nominations, as well as record-keeping, position and reporting for a variety of internal and external stakeholders. Often this work is completed manually or by using spreadsheets and legacy software solutions that do not allow all the information to be captured in one place – a single source of truth.

There is a need for businesses to reliably automate their business processes and tie-in legacy systems and tools, reducing both workload and complexity for busy market and trading teams.

The Solution:

EnergyFlow is a platform that allows energy companies to meet the complex and time-consuming demands of 24×7 energy markets.

Using the tools in the design console of EnergyFlow, users can choose to define and configure their own bespoke business, trading or reporting workflows. This enables automation and simplification of the most complex operational processes for gas, electricity and water markets.

  • Ready-made templates for operational processes (nominations, bid preparation, settlements).
  • User design console with easy to configure design tools (the system can be configured by Dunstan Thomas or by your staff).
  • Automation (and semi-automation) of information gathering required for market decision-making from a variety of sources (in-house systems, market systems, counterparty systems, weather, brokers etc).
  • Built-in algorithmic tools to allow user configuration of analytical and settlement calculations for use by automated processes.
  • Configurable data submission utility for B2B interactions.
  • Excel plug-in to enable seamless integration of in-house Microsoft ExcelTM spreadsheet models.
  • Full audit trail of records, data, acknowledgements etc. Enables faster and more reliable settlements processes and management oversight tools and assists in compliance.
