MeteoGroup presents new online-portal for energy trading at E-World 2017

Berlin, 04.01.2017: The price development of electricity and gas is strongly influenced by the weather. Precise weather data and reliable forecasts can create a clear competitive advantage. At E-world 2017 MeteoGroup will present its new online-portal, TradingMaster. Supporting energy traders in minimizing the risks associated with  balancing management, TradingMaster helps to leverage the full potential of fluctuating energy markets. 

MeteoGroup, Europe’s leading independent weather business, will present its new online-portal, TradingMaster, at E-World 2017 (7-9 February - hall 3, stand 121). TradingMaster offers quick and easy access to short, medium and long-term forecasts derived from the world’s best model data. MeteoGroup uses ECMWF, GFS and UKMO as well as its own multi-model-MOS and weather station network. 17.000 national weather service stations and MeteoGroup’s own network of 900 stations in Europe provide the basis for its precise weather forecasts for gas and electricity networks and solar and wind energy systems.

TradingMaster provides wind and solar output forecasts at national, regional and TSO level across Europe. Cluster maps and confidence levels enable precise analysis of the probability of weather scenarios occurring, and users benefit from better evaluation of their risk profile and can hedge against risks.

The online-portal also provides access to the wind power index NAREX WIDE. Futures based on this allow companies with the opportunity to hedge against risks involved in buying or selling energy from fluctuating wind power generation in Germany. MeteoGroup provides the daily index as well as an historic data set to enable profound analysis.

MeteoGroup will also present World Climate Service (WCS), a collaboration with U.S. company Prescient Weather Ltd.  WCS provides short, mid and long-term weather outlooks, global weather trends and seasonal forecasts, helping to increase knowledge and create a competitive advantage in energy trading and risk management. Temperature related energy demand, renewable energy availability and potential energy price fluctuations can be assessed in advance.
