E-world 2018: We delivered.
“Unbelievable, how much innovation is possible in one year!” – was the typical reaction from visitors to our booth. With over 25,000 visitors from more than 70 countries, E-world remains the leading event for the European energy industry. They expected information about the latest developments and current trends from the world of energy – and we delivered.
In addition to the long-standing themes of flexibility and decentralisation, the trending topics of this year’s E-world were Blockchain and artificial intelligence. However, one of the most important themes was the digitalisation of energy trading. The Periotheus Suite covers the full range. From power plant management to algo-trading and scheduling, the system can automate the complete process chain. Most energy companies have come to recognise that automated trading is not just hype, but rather a competitive necessity. Well-integrated automation is the only solution to cut costs and thus maximise margins.
While VisoTech offers a wide spectrum of automation solutions, one actor again stole the show this year – the autoTRADER. The opportunity to participate in intraday trading around the clock via algo-trading is fascinating energy traders across Europe. The advances we presented in this field exceeded all expectations. Above all, the ability to automate the trading of natural gas as well as power was a true visitor magnet. With one shot, the connection to PEGAS enables algo-trading at countless European gas hubs.
We also introduced the autoTRADER access. This solution offers energy companies without direct market access the ability to take their trading solutions into their own hands. Connections to the Slovenian (BSP SouthPool) and Hungarian (HUPX) intraday exchanges rounded out the new innovations of the autoTRADER platform.
By the time our exhausted booth team made its way to the airport on the evening of February 8th, they had held over 170 appointments. At our greatly expanded stand, all five meeting areas were constantly occupied. A new visitor record for VisoTech! Viennese coffee and snacks was available in our Periotheus Café, to ensure that our visitors could enjoy a relaxing atmosphere. To round off their visit, each guest was also able to enjoy a business Shiatsu massage.
We’d like to extend thanks to our visitors for all of the interesting discussions and contacts, as well as to the entire trade show team for the careful planning and untiring commitment that made this event an unqualified success. We look forward to mutually beneficial cooperation with our customers and partners.
