Emerging as the winner of a competitive bidding process to provide a next-generation financial settlements system for the Northern Territory Energy Market (NTEM), EnDimensions recently launched a project with Power and Water Corporation (PWC) of Darwin to provide and configure the EnSuite© Financial Solution, a cutting-edge software solution to manage meter data, financial settlements and reporting requirements as the Northern Territory energy market transitions to a more sophisticated and complex market structure. EnDimensions and PWC recently transitioned to parallel operation of EnSuite© with the existing PWC settlement system to validate full operation and accuracy prior to transitioning to full live operations. EnDimensions CEO Jeff Chapman commented “It is always gratifying to work with a company that has a skilled and dedicated project team such as PWC. We are proud to have met our commitments and are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with our friends at PWC.”

EnDimensions looks forward to supporting PWC in the transition to the new NTEM market rules and toward a thriving energy market that supports continued development of green energy resources and more efficient markets.

EnDimensions was pleased to support XM (eXpertos en Mercados) in Cartagena, Colombia by sponsoring the 5th Annual Foro, a gathering of the most influential and innovative stakeholders in the Colombian energy market. EnDimensions has provided an advanced EnSuite© Financial Settlements system and project services to XM.. Colombia has an active and expanding energy market, with many enhancements on the horizon to support more responsive markets and integrate a rapidly expanding renewable sector. Congratulations to XM on another engaging and informative Foro!

EnDimensions was proud to sponsor the 2023 Association of Power Exchanges (APEx) convention October 2023, in Istanbul, Turkey. APEx is an international group of energy market operators that is conceived and operated as a means for market operators to share insights and methods for both new and evolving energy markets across the globe. As always, it is a much-appreciated opportunity for EnDimensions staff to meet and “talk shop” with a diverse group of staff and executives who are instrumental in advancing the social benefits of energy markets from Europe, North America, Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.

Dr. Jeff Chapman was pleased to share the expertise of EnDimensions in the area of financial management and financial settlements with the group, focusing on expanding the utilization of renewable energy sources worldwide. In every area in the world, the expanding use of renewable energy sources presents operational and market challenges that must be addressed to provide clean, economical and reliable energy. Markets must create on-ramps to market participation for innovative technologies, providing incentives to increase beneficial sources of green energy and fostering innovation.

But fostering renewable energy development presents a number of challenges to market operators, invariably increasing the data volume and complexity of the transactional side of the market. A few of the major roadblocks, particularly in developing markets, are as follows:

  • Shorter intervals for pricing and settlement drive a large increase the amount of data processing required. For example, transitioning from a single daily energy price to an hourly price increases the data volume by a factor of at least 24. Go to 5-minute intervals and that factor increase to 288 or more

  • Increased operational requirements for flexible resources to provide energy for filling in the peaks and valleys of renewable energy production require new products and services, such as flexible ramping and operating reserves, multiplying the complexity of settlement calculations

  • Increasing regulatory and auditability requirements make it mandatory to have a robust, stable and centralized system to allow for transparency in all financial transactions and to provide a platform for reporting to government oversight agencies

  • Budget Constraints make it difficult to place expensive IT infrastructure in service before it is needed, creating a critical need for systems that can start small but scale up cleanly and conveniently to meet increasing demands

It is critical for evolving markets to keep the settlement side of the picture in sight, and act proactively to put robust financial systems and supporting IT platforms in place to avoid being overwhelmed by the changes that new market policies require.
