Stakeholders Gain Competitive Advantage

  • Forecasting when trader assets are likely to be impacted by inertia management actions by grid operators has allowed Reactive’s customers to improve their performance in the balancing mechanism relative to peers.
  • High speed notification of locational grid events, such as interconnector trips, provide opportunities on intraday power markets.
  • Battery owners and optimizers utilize balancing market forecasts when tendering for ancillary services.

The Technology


Tradenergy® allows short-term power traders, asset owners and market analysts to benefit from the same real-time monitoring and forecasting infrastructure used by grid operators in the control room. With increasing levels of renewable generation, grid operators require more advanced tools to monitor the system in real-time.
