Thermal Generation Bidding Optimization

Thermal Generation Bidding Optimization

Maximize the net profit from generation and bidding in a power market / ISO and the resulting expected clearing price and RTD, while fulfilling contractual obligations. Intraday and DA trading models.

Generators

Thermal Generation Dispatch Optimization

Maximize the net profit from generation and buy-sell in intraday and DA bilateral spot markets while fulfilling contractual obligations, and operational constraints.

Reserves-Bidding-Optimization

Reserves Bidding Optimization

Maximize the profit from optimal bidding of generators in reserve and balancing markets vs participating in the energy spot market.

BESS & Hydro Assets Optimization

BESS & Hydro Assets Bidding Optimization

Maximize intraday & DA trading profit for BESS, hydro and pump-storage assets. Optimize the bidding strategies for buy-store vs power (or water) release decisions under all constraints of each asset.

LSE Sourcing Portfolio

LSE Sourcing Portfolio Optimization

Minimize the total energy sourcing cost of load serving entities in intraday and DA trading, by optimizing the scheduling of callable bilateral contracts vs buy-sell in a bilateral or power market / ISO spot market.

Trading-Optimization-Service

QR Trading Optimization Features

  • Intraday & DA optimal bidding & trading strategies in 5-60 mins resolution along with expected clearing dispatch, prices & P&L.
  • New revised optimal trading strategies are executed every 10 mins, 24/7 for intraday trading, and 9:00 for DA.
  • Advanced trading optimization algorithms extract the fullest advantage from arbitrage and market opportunities in volatile electricity markets, and the constraints of your assets, leading to sizable increases in P&L or asset valuation.
  • Trading optimization algorithms for generation assets (thermal, hydro, BESS), and trading or sourcing portfolios.
  • Automated trading with interfaces for trade (bid) submission to electricity market operators and exchanges via API.
  • Real-time & post-trade detailed performance analysis comparing the actual and optimal trading scenarios: dispatch, fuel, costs, revenue and P&L.

Trading Optimization Advanced Ecosystem

  • Microservice architecture enables accelerated custom configuration of electricity trading & generation optimization solutions.
  • API-friendly ecosystem allows flexible integration and data exchange with third party & in-house systems. Functionalities are constantly enhanced and extended to meet clients requirements.

Build, fine-tune and deploy custom trading optimization models in record time

  • No-coding optimization platform allows users to drag, drop and combine, in a user-friendly web-dashboard, the elements needed to configure the relevant optimization algorithm, underlying asset type, detailed cash flow mapping of cost and revenue, and complex operational and financial constraints.
  • Our proprietary optimization methods use global optimization algorithms, linear and nonlinear constraints modeling, level-dependent ramp and spot prices, proprietary heuristics methods, and bid price selection methods that dynamically adjust the price of the bids to act as a price maker, a price taker.
  • The model uses our own very accurate AI forecasts of load (demand, supply, etc.), system price, and the stack of bids & offers for the market in which we operate.

Benefits

  • You can always start with a POC Trial where we back-test some of your trades against the optimal scenarios, and deduce how much QR Trading Optimizer can improve your P&L.
  • License what you need. You can license each component separately, depending on your needs, e.g., price forecasting, bidding & trading optimization, back-office settlement & billing or risk management.
  • Two flexible delivery options:
    • Trading Optimization as a Service. Our cloud platform and expert team do everything, and you receive, via API and in web dashboards, the desired outputs, e.g., price forecasts, optimal bidding & trading schedules every 10 minutes, 24/7. No software installation, hardware and IT resources are needed.
    • Software as a Service (SaaS) where we implement the system on a private cloud of your choosing, or on-site, and you control the data and the models.
  • Ready-to use platform. We offer a large number of especially designed trading optimization algorithms and models for sourcing portfolio, and the bidding of thermal asset (gas, coal and diesel) and BESS & hydropower plants. These can be used on your assets and markets with minor configuration.
  • Cost-effective pricing. Whether you use QR Trading Optimizer as a service or as SaaS, you pay one single annual subscription fee. The fee comprises the license, maintenance and upgrade releases. In no case will this solution cost anything, it can generate profits worth 10x its license cost.
  • P&L enhancement. QR Trading Optimizer considerably improves the trading P&L, or asset valuation.
    • Maximize profit from bidding, generation and selling in a power market or ISO. Maximize profit from bidding into reserve markets versus selling in the spot market.
    • Minimize energy sourcing cost for utilities and LSEs.
  • Expert team. In-house trading optimization models require extensive expert resources. Models are sensitive to myriads of constraints in assets & operations. QR Trading Optimizer was created as a universal optimization platform that could be configured for various operations. Our team of mathematician PhD experts closely work with clients to customize and maintain the optimization model that suits their asset portfolio.
