Actively manage demand, drive profits and lower risk
The unfortunate truth for utilities is that traditional tools for energy trading and risk management too often fall well short of what they need. That can be the case for a large, integrated utility as much as it can be for small municipal operators. Either way, this troublesome state opens the door to increased risks and costs.

So speak with us today. Let us tell you about how our energy trading and risk management solution can change your business.
"[With] the legacy system we had prior to Allegro, we could not manage all our commodity risk properly. Our emissions and renewables portfolio was in spreadsheets, and a lot of the gas activities was not as detailed as what we have today from a logistics standpoint. We had probably 8 to 10 small, little applications around the core risk management system, and it wasn’t sufficient."
"With increasing complexity in local power and gas markets, shifting regulations and volatile energy trading markets, we needed a strategic partnership to help us support and automate the process related to energy management."
"The flexibility of the solution provided by Allegro and the potential for our IT development team to enhance it to suit evolving demands and supplement other business-critical in-house developments made Allegro the right choice for us. Allegro's proven track record, plus the advanced technology, provides us with an effective transaction management system. Considering our ambitions to expand our European footprint, this solution provides us with a strong systemic foundation to further grow our business."
