enFlow is a business process automation tool dedicated to the needs of the energy industry. It has been specifically designed to support day-to-day functions for electricity, gas and carbon trading, including operations, reporting and settlements.

enFlow is an essential tool for businesses looking to increase agility and productivity.

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 business 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 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 is highly flexible and can be applied to a large variety of energy industry problems.

It supports the business processes involved in the daily operations of an energy portfolio, from simple processes to complex calculations.

Discover the benefits of enFlow

Modern energy companies must interact with various markets and counterparties with a plethora of technologies, data and processing requirements.

These markets require complex gathering, processing and dissemination of data, usually within tight deadlines.  Activities include preparation of bids and offers, nominations for supply and transportation, settlement, record keeping and reporting for internal and external stakeholders. Often this work is completed manually with spreadsheets or using in-house legacy applications that do not capture data in one place.

There is an opportunity for businesses to reliably automate their business processes, integrate legacy systems and to provide control around manual processes. The benefit is reduced effort, risk, training and key person risk while increasing the time available for staff to focus on optimising trading and operational outcomes.

Examples of enFlow in action

Automation of physical market interactions for solar and wind farms

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.

Optimisation and automation of gas operations

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 optimisation.

Automation of interactions with ETRM and energy nomination systems

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.

Battery Optimisation (BESS)

enFlow includes a battery energy storage system (BESS) optimiser that can determine the most economic scheduling of BESS resources across energy and frequency control markets. Batteries are highly flexible assets and their most economic use may depend on a number of factors which may be unique to each asset. enFlow can gather the required inputs from multiple sources – including markets, network operators and battery management systems – and optimise the planned and actual economic dispatch of the batteries subject to the specific needs of each asset.  

Flex Contracts

Due to its highly configurable nature, enFlow provides an ideal platform to support the settlement and operation of complex energy contracts with flex and optionality. Business rules for operation and settlement of such trades can be defined via configuration in enFlow’s elegant expression language with integrations to ETRMs and other relevant business systems to receive and distribute relevant information such as option exercise and settlement.

Typical uses for enFlow include:

  • Managing Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) – such as validating operating schedules against contractual limits
  • Managing settlement of PPAs and similar contracts
  • Extending the settlements capabilities of ETRMs for complex trades by retrieving trade details, performing settlements calculations and exporting results back
  • Executing complex calculations such as those used in forecasting and valuation
  • TSO nominations for capacity and storage
  • Managing certificate inventory and registry transactions
  • Decomposition of shape profiles into standard tradeable blocks and importing into an ETRM
  • Retrieving the latest credit ratings, pricing data and other critical decision-making data and import directly to your ETRM
