New York, September 25, 2001 – Sakonnet Technology, an energy trading software and services provider, has expanded its trading and risk management application to include European electricity transactions and scheduling, the company said.

Now, traders can quickly and easily enter, track and analyze their physical and financial power trades in the German, Nord Pool and other European markets. Analysis is done in real time, enabling traders to take advantage of sudden shifts in the market.

“This powerful new technology meets the European markets’ needs because it reflects direct input from some of the region’s major players,” said Thurstan Bannister, Sakonnet’s Chief Executive Officer.

Operations staff can schedule power deliveries online, giving them better control over their physical portfolios. Users can define their own load profiles for analysis along with standard peak, off-peak, baseload and Leipzig Power Exchange load profiles.

Additional features include the ability to value options strips as well as the usual monthly expiry. Risk managers will be able to model physical generation assets to evaluate potential market opportunities.

“Sakonnet is unique in this field because it enables companies to evaluate its software in a true production environment with full support before any financial or hardware commitment,” Bannister added.  “We look forward to more utilities across Europe trying out our new power functionality and proving its advantages to themselves.
