We specialize in short-term proprietary wholesale power trading in Europe.

Via these strategies, vast market understanding, experience, and data science, we move power to where it’s needed the most across the European continent.
Use of IT
We apply modern technologies and agile development methodologies to create data science solutions that enable us to get deep insights into the electricity markets. Our software architecture is all about cloud and we speak fluent Python 🐍.
