In a competitive, fast-paced energy market, businesses need to increase productivity, reduce cost and eliminate risk. To remain ahead of the competition and take advantage of market opportunities, smart, effective decisions need to be made rapidly.
enFlow is a process automation tool designed to swiftly provide critical data needed to support decision-making and to automate laborious and complex processes, from basic reading of emails to intelligent optimisations and evaluations. enFlow enables businesses to free up human talent to be used more effectively.
enFlow is a purpose-built automation solution designed to improve productivity, reduce workload and business risk, simplify workflows and improve integration across systems.
It can automate processes such as PPAs, energy bid preparations, nominations, settlement of complex trades including PPAs, bid and offer preparation, market compliance monitoring, management of certificates and much more.
enFlow is easy to use and configurable to the specific needs of a business or operation. It can be configured in-house without coding, enabling users to support bespoke business, trading or reporting workflows.
Businesses can simplify the most complex operational processes for gas, electricity and renewable markets, wholesale, generation or retail. Processes execute automatically, meaning businesses can focus on what is most important.
enFlow provides many options to work with counterparties and enables direct integration with trading and operation software solutions, such as Energy Trading Risk Management (ETRM) products, pricing engines and notification tools. It can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise.
enFlow supports the business processes involved in the daily operations of an energy portfolio, from simple processes to complex calculations.
The operation of solar and wind farms must be continually monitored for compliance and economic conditions. For example, in Australia, due to the increased penetration of renewables, there can often be extended periods of negative pool prices, in which case it usually makes economic sense to decrease generation. With enFlow, a business can monitor for current and scheduled negative price periods and automatically send signals to plant control systems to decrease generation according to user-configured business rules.
For both gas system operators (transmission system operators) and gas market participants, the daily tasks of gathering data, balancing, nominating, scheduling and reconciling gas across pipelines, storage assets and contracts is data-intensive, complex and involves interactions with multiple systems. enFlow is the ideal tool for both gathering and disseminating data and for automatically executing user-defined business rules for portfolio operation and optimization.
There are many ETRMs and nomination/scheduling systems in the market. Many of these systems provide an API or toolkit allowing for extension or automation of the product operation. Automation using these APIs is typically defined using scripting languages such as Python. enFlow provides a compelling alternative to scripting, by allowing automations to be defined graphically via a drag and drop interface. As such, business analysts can very quickly and clearly implement required automations. This can reduce solution turnaround times and increase responsiveness to change.
