Sydney 17 October 2012 - Lacima is delighted to announce that SSE has successfully implemented Lacima Analytics to value and optimise its multi-commodity portfolio of gas and electricity assets and to achieve a consolidated view of risk across its entire portfolio. Lacima Analytics, the complete application for energy risk management, valuation and optimisation, is helping the company to gain competitive advantage by being able to enhance the optimisation of its physical assets.

SSE is one of the UK’s leading energy companies with interests in electricity and gas production, distribution, supply and services. It owns and operates over 11,979 megawatts of electricity generation capacity, distributes electricity to 3.5 million homes and workplaces and supplies electricity, gas and other services to over 10 million customers.

SSE is now employing various solutions from Lacima Analytics to improve its analytical capabilities with regard to the valuation and risk assessment of its energy portfolio which includes retail sales, wholesales trades and generation assets. The company is employing earnings-at-risk metrics across the portfolio utilising Lacima’s peer recognised single and multi factor stochastic models.

Dr Chris Strickland, Director of Lacima, remarked, “The price volatility of energy markets today are driving organisations to implement best of breed software solutions to better manage their physical assets for profitability and to more accurately quantify risks. We are delighted to add SSE to a growing list of global customers who are benefiting from our leading application for energy risk management, valuation and optimisation and look forward to a long-term working relationship.”

Collin Fullerton, Planning and Risk Manager from SSE said “The selection of Lacima’s Analytics was a major decision for us, and was made after a comprehensive review of software systems currently available in the market. Lacima’s solution won due to its impressive modelling capabilities, its ability to achieve a single consolidated view of risk across the entire portfolio, and its flexibility to meet our bespoke requirements, including the ability to handle the more complex characteristics of our power generation assets, storage facilities, and gas supply contracts. During the implementation we were very impressed with the knowledgeable and highly professional Lacima team who ensured we implemented on-time and on-budget.”
