Contracts Capture Framework
The contracts capture framework is a basic ETRM. It is a single user application aimed at small to medium sized organisations with low volume contract capture needs. It provides a subset of features when compared with enterprise scale ETRM’s but those features constitute the core of what an ETRM should provide. It provides a robust handling of power markets which many ETRMs on the market do not do optimally. The concept of demand and contract profiles is handled in an effective manner for a system of this size.
The system supports deal entry on either a contract regime basis or a pure date basis with a regime applied
The system supports the entry of profiled contracts. This concept may not be supported by many of the mainstream ETRM’s but it can be useful especially for power traders with retail portfolios who need to back off power purchases against power sales.
