Allegro for Power

Actively manage demand, drive profits and lower risk.

Traditional power-management methods often fall short of providing the accuracy that's necessary to properly define historical usage and actual volumes of commercial and industrial retail electricity. As a result, both risks and costs increase, potentially considerably.

To avoid this scenario, power companies need a way to manage their operations in a manner that truly reflects consumption and demand. Spreadsheets are no longer the answer. Antiquated legacy systems written for another time aren't either. The solution, instead, is Allegro's commodity risk management software. Designed to give power market participants real-time insights, Allegro enables power sales, usage measurement, allocation and balancing for retail traders, utilities and electric providers.

Power companies need to be capable of managing demand, while avoiding imbalances, in order to satisfy customers and regulators. At the same time, these companies are under constant pressure to minimize risk and improve profits. Allegro is made to handle this, thanks to technology that's been developed over 30 years to suit the trying demands of the power industry.
