Machine learning trading robot versus ‘man’… who wins?

Visitors to our Wind Days 2018 stand could predict the TSOs imbalance prices themselves and gain insight into the systems behind the imbalance market and the intelligent predictive algorithms of Senfal.

Now that Senfal offers sharply priced PPAs for wind energy, a presence at the Wind Days in Rotterdam was very suitable. Visitors to the Senfal stand could predict the TSOs imbalance prices themselves and gain insight into the systems behind the imbalance market and the intelligent predictive algorithms of Senfal. The participant that could do this the fastest and most accurately could name themselves the winner. It was eventually Brendan Williams from Blue Bear Energy who walked away with the grand prize, an exclusive Vesta wind turbine…by Lego. The Senfal software robot trades in the energy markets based on its self-learning algorithms. This is always better and faster than trading manually. Even when you can have a good grasp of the market. This provides unique advantages to wind farms:

Guaranteed the best price for your energy

Senfal’s PPAs are, contrary to other PPAs on the market, completely automated thanks to self-learning software. The software is developed based on machine learning and is capable of rapidly analyzing huge historical datasets. This allows for accurately predicting future prices on the energy market and buying or selling electricity at the most suitable moments. Another advantage: these artificial traders don’t need sleep. Automated trading in energy can happen 24/7. Robot: 1. Man: 0… 

Certainty in your energy trade

By applying smart methods, Senfal can offer their clients a great price for electricity in every imaginable situation. This provides security and comfort. Senfal finds it important that clients have no worries about their energy trade.

A level of transparency unknown to the market

It’s very unusual in the energy market to provide insight into the structure of an electricity contract. When the data is provided in very unusual cases, they’re impossible to interpret without explanation by a financial expert. This is why Senfal has developed an online dashboard to supplement the PPAs. This dashboard provides complete insight into production and/or use of energy, the profits, savings by curtailment (de-energizing) and lastly, market information. Real-time. The fair was a success for Senfal and Senfal is working hard at different follow-ups with people/companies that contacted Senfal representatives at the Wind Days. Who knows, until next year!.
