Case Study

Renewable energy firm Good Energy chooses Energy One UK

Share this

The Company

Established in 1999, Good Energy was the first UK energy supplier to offer 100 per cent renewable electricity to the nation’s households. It supplies renewable power to over 30,000 domestic and commercial customers, with the addition of gas to a further 6,700 domestic customers.

The Challenge

Good Energy was looking for a solution to manage its Energy Contract Volume Notifications (ECVN).

The Solution

Good Energy was so impressed with Contigo’s straight-through automated ECVN nominations and the UK gas and power trading capabilities they opted to purchase both; enTrader, our energy trading and risk portfolio management software; and enVoy, a communications and regulatory notifications platform.

The Implementation

enTrader allows energy traders to manage and compare multiple positions including demand, supply and traded views of data. Trades can also be managed in a half-hourly granularity for power and daily for gas, although both can be customised to suit. The product suite also allows for position snapshots, audit trails, search and filter capabilities which are increasingly important for regulatory compliance.

The Results

The team at Good Energy highlighted a number of enTrader’s built-in features as being most impressive, including the suite’s ability to be customised to connect with any existing third party software; supported Application Programme Interface, allowing the client to develop their own customisation code without needing to return to Energy One; and inclusion of custom attributes which allows users to add client-specific data to the system on a project-by-project basis.
