Proprietary Systems

Energy Edge has developed several software systems which cover electricity market risk analysis, NEM bidding and analysis, STTM gas market and water markets.

GMAT - Gas Market Analysis Tool

Energy Edge has developed the Gas Market Analysis Tool (GMAT) as a dynamic web deployed system that incorporates all known gas usage and supplies across the Australia East coast markets using up to date data from a number of key gas supply, usage and transportation data sources.

Energy Edge currently delivers the software capabilities through an online service to subscribing industry customers spanning gas users, gas generation, gas producers and financial institutions.

The Market Edge suite of software offers a complete set of tools for analyzing portfolio risk, performing market simulations and visualizing results. The system has been tailored to suit the specific needs of many clients and is a key risk management tool used by some of Australia’s largest electricity generators.

Automated NEM Forecast

The Energy Edge Automated NEM Forecast engine interfaces with the EMMS Infoserver to generate a succession of regional electricity prices, demand and dispatch forecasts over the medium term. The system applies an unbiased scientific forecasting approach which replicates the underlying key dispatch algorithm of the physical market used by AEMO.

Use Energy Edge's Automated NEM Forecast tool to anticipate changes in the market which can effect price outcomes, price volatility and then take advantage of these forward trading opportunities.

Credit Risk Tool

The Energy Edge Credit Risk Tool delivers sophisticated credit risk analysis and metrics for wholesale trading across multiple commodities. The software implements an advanced methodology encompassing current and potential future exposures, exposures and expected loss metrics. The package handles a large array of contract types, commodities, credit support structures and configurable features.

Market Alerting System

Designed with the Australian electricity market in mind, this system monitors market conditions and sends alerts via SMS and email. Such alerts are critical since volatile markets can greatly affect the profitability of market participants. This system allows the user to configure fine grained alerting rules and to define alert targets based on the alert type.

SysTTM - the STTM Data Service

SysTTM is a software service that allows STTM participants or non participants to keep an up-to-date set of STTM data locally. The service downloads files form AEMO as they become available and processes the data into a SQL Database. SysTTM completely eliminates the need to manually retrieve data and all downloaded files are checked for correctness. Once installed, the user can query the data, generate inbuilt reports or create new reports. The system is useful for STTM decision making, analysis and strategizing as well as reporting and reconciliation.

CASS - Contracts and Settlement System

CASS is a client server software product developed for South East Queensland Water Grid Manager (SEQWGM) to manage meter volume readings and invoicing. The system allows users to define meter volume formulae that specify how entities are billed, as well as manage contracts and view meter data.

NEM Bidding Tool

The Energy Edge NEM Bidding Tool enables energy traders to visualize market bids, devise bidding strategies and submit bids to AEMO. The software includes screen displays on current market conditions in electricity, gas and other markets along with plant operations. The Energy Edge Bidding Tool provides your electricity spot traders with an advantage to quickly and effectively analyse the market and offer generators to market in an optimal way. When integrated with the Short Term Forecasting module, the traders are able to manage bids seven days ahead to handle energy constraints and forecast spot market conditions.

Energy Edge MMS Batcher

The Energy Edge MMS Batcher makes the AEMO market Infoserver available to everyone (not just registered participants): Energy Users, Financial Intermediaries, Government Departments and more. The Batcher software automatically retrieves the AEMO market data files and populates a local version of the MMS database on your server. Entities running the Energy Edge replicator will have access to a broad range of public NEM market data including spot price, demand, interconnector flows, dispatch and predispatch. The MMS replicator can work in conjunction with the STTM database and the NEM Bidding Tool to provide a full spot trading solution.
