RENEWABLES ARE CHANGING AUSTRALIA'S NATIONAL ENERGY MARKET

FASTER MARKETS

Markets are moving faster than traders can respond. With more intermittent wind and solar, market price volatility is increasing. Manual bidding cannot predict or react quickly enough to avoid frequent negative pricing events.

NEGATIVE PRICES

Across the NEM, negative price frequency has increased by 22% over the last 2 years. This trend will continue as up to 8 GW of new renewables are interconnected by 2021, an increase of almost 100%.

LOST MARKET REVENUE

Manual trading misses negative price events, especially during off hours. Independent power producers and gentailers need new bidding strategies and tools that can fully realize the value of power supplied to the market.

HOW MUCH ARE NEGATIVE PRICES COSTING YOU?

Negative prices are up 22% in the Australia National Energy Market in the last 2 years. Conventional manual bidding can’t keep up with the volatility caused by intermittent supply.
