Intraday Position Optimization and Trading

  • Optimize Intraday Power
  • Multiple Markets
  • Automated Trading
  • Time/Price Limited Orders

The Intraday Market offers great opportunities to balance positions closer to real time. It has opened an opportunity for Utilities to integrate intermittent supply from Renewable sources with trading strategies, to optimize Portfolios at the lowest granularity. However there are some challenges:

  • Multiple sources of position update – Customers, Generation, Sales, Wind/Solar. Impossible to keep track of and manage.

  • Equitable splitting of Executed trades and matching to corresponding Orders.

  • Interconnected systems require feedback regarding executions and prices.

  • Several manual steps involved in moving the Executions to the ETRM system.
