Tokyo (PRWEB) January 09, 2017
Allegro Development Corporation, a leading provider of commodity management software, today announced that Tokyo Gas, the largest natural gas utility in Japan and the primary provider of natural gas to metropolitan Tokyo and the Kanto region, has chosen Allegro to manage its trading operations in the Japanese electricity market.
Tokyo Gas, which was founded in 1885, provides a wide range of services, including city gas production, supply and sales, gas appliances, energy services and electricity supply.
Before choosing Allegro’s software, Tokyo Gas had been looking for a commodity trading and risk management system that would be easy to use and enable the company to streamline its power trading operations, while retaining the flexibility to keep pace with business developments.
“In the Allegro platform, we have found an innovative, sophisticated and adaptable system to meet our needs in the power trading market. Operational agility and risk management are of significant importance for Tokyo Gas and key to sustaining our competitive advantage,” said Hirofumi Sato, General Manager of the company’s Power Business Planning Department. “We are convinced that Allegro’s technological innovation will help us to achieve our business goals, and we look forward to working with the company. We’re confident that, as our requirements change, Allegro will be capable of changing with us and extending our system as needed.”
Tokyo Gas determined that Allegro will help it to strengthen and expand its electric power business, which is one of its key priorities. The company has a goal to increase its electricity sales volume from about 10 billion kilowatt-hours in 2013 to around 30 billion kWh in 2020.
Through leveraging Allegro, Tokyo Gas will gain:
“Allegro proved to Tokyo Gas that we have the most comprehensive power electricity trading functionality in the industry,” said Jonathan English, Managing Director, EMEA and APAC, at Allegro. “This win further demonstrates Allegro’s ability to develop and implement trading and risk management solutions that meet the needs of the Japanese energy market.”
