Energy marketers, traders and retail service providers play a unique role within the energy industry, serving as the middle man between producers of energy and utilities and end-use customers. These organizations must closely balance the supply and demand of energy, manage multiple commodities and complex transactions, and closely monitor the risk associated with this balance. To remain competitive, these organizations offer unique, complex pricing arrangements with their clients. At the same time, these organizations must adhere to regulatory financial and energy reporting requirements.
Ventyx recognizes the need to accurately forecast demand, provide a high-level of customer service, and offer complex pricing, environment and demand response programs.
