International company selects Contigo’s enVoy
Invenergy chose Contigo as the provider of its UK notification and settlement software as we are able to offer an ‘out of the box’ solution that could be implemented quickly, and is backed by a high quality support service and has insights into the UK market.
Invenergy, develops, owns and operates clean energy facilities across the globe. They selected our enVoy software as their system to handle notifications and settlement data for its first UK project: a wind farm in Scotland.
Invenergy and its affiliated companies have developed more than 13,700 MW of projects that are in operation, in construction, or under contract, including wind, solar, and natural gas-fuelled power generation projects and energy storage facilities. Its clients include Google, for whom it recently announced a partnership to harness wind power to support the tech giant’s data centre operations.
enVoy simplifies the process of sending and receiving energy industry data in the European power and gas markets. It provides a reliable, easy-to-use communications framework that enables organisations to make the necessary links and ensure that data is submitted correctly.
Invenergy associate asset manager, Jonathan Kett comments: “We had heard good things about Contigo from others in the industry and chose its enVoy software as it was a turnkey solution that could meet our requirements.
“Contigo worked with us to ensure that the system would provide us with all the reports we would need and also helped us to gain CVA accreditation with Elexon to fulfil our contractual requirements. The company has been very responsive to our enquiries and handled the implementation process well, with no delays. Contigo hosts the service for us in the UK and this means that we are able to avoid additional complexities.”
All Contigo energy trading software solutions have flexibility built-in, and enVoy is a customisable communications framework that is designed to easily adapt to new industries, market rules or data flows. This means that Invenergy will have the option to expand its usage of enVoy in the future.
Jonathan Kett comments: “enVoy is an essential part of our operating structure in the UK, it is easy to use and we also have the option to expand and add functionality that would allow us to further develop our business in the UK (by submitting Bid-Offer Pairs).”
Contigo is passionate about working in partnership with clients and providing high quality customer support and training. Jonathan Kett comments: “We were able to undertake the entire process of selecting and implementing enVoy efficiently and conveniently with all meetings and training being undertaken remotely with no travel to the UK required. Contigo even catered for our US hours. The experience of working with Contigo has been very good; the team has been very responsive to our enquiries and I would recommend the company and its enVoy software.”
