Our Ecosystem Partners

Enegen provides distinct but associated and connected applications to the power industry.

Genstar4 has been supporting organisations with their UK Balancing Mechanism entry and participation for over twenty years. ATOM is a relatively new development for the DER (Distributed energy resources) market.

ATOM is effectively multiple virtual power plants that are integrated to work together.

ATOM offers users the ability to switch on and off many assets, aggregate them and trade their output optimally.

ATOM uses algorithms to commercially optimise which assets to schedule, when and into what market.

Enegen works extensively with its partner network where its ATOM application connects to ETRM systems, Control systems, market prices and industry flows (which are not addressed by Genstar4).

An example of this collaboration is the provision of an integrated suite of software and services for new entrants wishing to set up trading and optimisation ‘desks’.

Enegen - More than the sum of its parts - a complete solution

The Genstar4 suite helps traders balance their portfolios and generators, aggregators, VLPs and asset operators to participate in the balancing mechanism and TERRE markets and interact with National Grid ESO via EDT, EDL or Wider Access.

Trading Optimisation and Asset Scheduling Software for Decentralised Electricity Markets.

The dramatic evolution of the decentralised electricity generation market continues to present new opportunities and challenges for participants. Opportunities exist for asset operators, generators and aggregators of portfolios of production and consumption assets to trade power availability on the EPEX day ahead and intraday exchanges and participate in the Balancing Mechanism. With the move towards smaller, geographically dispersed, distribution connected assets, the scheduling of trades across a large portfolio of assets of various technology types becomes ever more complex and challenging whilst delivering opportunities for further trading.

  • Tracks market prices and asset running costs to deliver a real time period or EFA block display of buy and sell trading opportunities on the day ahead and intraday exchanges supporting automatic submission of offers to EPEX and cross trading of profitable opportunities.
  • Provides flexibility to enable traders to organise and group their asset portfolios as required including trading books, customer groups, GSP groups, BMUs and the assets themselves.
  • Supports the creation and maintenance of asset properties, characteristics and scheduling rules and the import or calculation of the asset’s short run marginal costs.
  • Provides real time displays of availability and scheduled position at any level, allows offers to be submitted to EPEX and the BM and supports algorithmic scheduling of traded position and orders across assets based on scheduling and market.
