Accenture's Utility Generation & Energy Markets group focuses on bringing value to utilities through a comprehensive approach to optimizing the wholesale enterprise, both from physical and financial perspectives.
Drawing on our industry research, deep business process knowledge and systems integration expertise, Accenture assists market operators (regional transmission operators (RTOs)/independent system operators (ISOs), market participants and asset-backed utilities in building the capabilities they need to thrive in wholesale markets.
As the wholesale energy markets continue to evolve and mature, the market systems that the RTO/ISOs use, as well as the interfacing applications that utilities leverage to operate in the competitive wholesale markets, will become more complex.
At Accenture, we have helped our clients realize high performance with the following Wholesale Markets Integration capabilities:
Market Enablement Services—We assist clients in establishing market operations. Our services include providing project management, requirements analysis, detailed design, software development and testing, system integration, production support and training.
RTO Integration Services—We assist companies that are joining RTOs/ISOs and/or making the transition to competitive electricity markets. Our services include process and system design, readiness testing, market trials business simulations, training and communication support and program management.
Market Systems Application Management—We provide outsourcing of maintenance, development, and testing of client systems, including market settlements and accounting, human resources, information technology management, etc.
Bulk Power Operations—We work with asset-backed utilities that own generation across various RTO/ISO markets and assist the client from system requirement identification to implementation with a focus on improving straight-through processing across the organization from trading to settlements.
Portfolio Strategy/Asset Optimization—We assist clients in evaluating options and simulation methods to evaluate decisions that will yield maximum value for an asset base. Some of the options that may be considered include: build vs. buy decisions for new plants or portfolio re-balancing; environmental legislation; fuel supply chain optimization; operational expenditure vs. capital expenditure decisions; and bidding/trading strategies. These options should be stress tested against boom vs. bust economies, regulatory standards (pro-utility vs. anti-utility) and commodity price swings.
