Are you ready?
These are only a few of the questions European market participants are facing today. Newly enacted governmental regulations, as well as macro-economic trends, new services, business models and competitors from across recently deregulated national markets, are adding new levels of complexity. A critical challenge is how to cope with these sweeping changes.

Critical to your success is how you adapt your trading system to new business challenges in terms of efficiency and functionality.
In a rapidly changing energy market, you need a smart and flexible trading system. For example, an EU push to foster harmonisation with member countries will drive greater trading volumes while increasing both complexity and risk. For starters, your trading systems must be integrated with real time risk management strategies to support your decisions.

As national energy markets increasingly move towards cross-border trading, market participants must be able to view electricity balances and inform the relevant transmission system operator (TSO) of the power scheduling or nomination across multiple standards in near to real time.
Since harmonisation of standards appears to be many years away, market participants are faced with the challenge of exchanging information across multiple markets and standards for the foreseeable future. However, for market participants ready to embrace cross-border energy trading, the ability to schedule efficiently at lower risk is critical to success.
In this area, Brady Energy has extensive experience in balancing and scheduling or nomination. With our leading industry insight we are well equipped to assist you in finding the best solutions to stay ahead of competitors.

With this automated solution, you can utilise our user-friendly interface, which provides a comprehensive overview of your entire scheduling workflow and status as well as access to step-by-step guidance through the process. You can also drill down to any level of detail.

Configurable ‘settlement and invoicing’
We automate settlement/invoicing to the degree you require. Once the data is in the system, you can make it available throughout the entire deal life cycle, or choose which parts are to be quarantined. The flexible workflow and notification engines allow automation that is tailored to your processes.
The growth of regional entities, whether spot markets or balancing markets, is creating a need for market settlement processes that can handle cross- border issues.
In the next few years, transnational integration will further increase as the EU directives are implemented and greater transmission capacity between formerly fragmented markets becomes available. These developments will intensify the need for settlement systems that can handle the growing complexity of cross-border data trading, such as national value-added taxes, currencies and languages. To effectively compete, market and grid operators need to upgrade to standardized and configurable systems in a seamless way and without system failure.
With its extensive expertise in market settlement globally, Brady Energy is helping make the transition to more integrated markets a seamless, low risk and cost efficient experience
