Innovations in Trading Digitalisation is the key topic for this winter!
"I am thrilled to announce the launch of our new Energy Trading Insider and share this with you all. In this first issue, we explore ‘Digitalisation and Innovation’ in trading technology. Over the last several years, with so many companies facing challenges in how they operate, adoption of new technology has accelerated dramatically. Last year’s buzzword is this year’s implementation project, and, as you’ll see in our newly released Energy Trading Annual Industry Survey for 2023, our data shows that tech like artificial intelligence and blockchain are front of mind for decision makers in today’s trading shops. Early successes have led to a rapid acceleration of technical innovation within energy trading organisations. What will the “next wave” of trading digitalisation bring? Our Insiders are a one-stop-shop for industry news, expert commentary, engaging online webinars on demand, and so much more. We hope to provide you with valuable insights and information on how digitalisation and innovation are shaping the future of energy trading, and how you can take advantage of these developments to stay ahead of the curve."
