The European power and gas industry is currently going through a period of very rapid change that has potentially far reaching consequences. While change is certainly no stranger to the industry, it requires players in the industry to constantly re-evaluate their business process and technology infrastructures in order to adapt and thrive. Examples of the drivers for change include:
• Changes in the regional and national political landscape in terms of both environmental issues and the overall structure of the industry,
• A host of new regulatory and governance regulations,
• Decreased profit margins and,
• Major shifts in all aspects of technology from generation to computing,
Energy companies will need to rapidly respond to these changes and this response will certainly include a review and perhaps upgrade of their Energy Trading and Risk Management (ETRM) and related software.
