In 2013, Just Energy selected Adapt2 ISO for their Settlements and Back Office operations. Driven by the success of that project, Just implemented Adapt2 ISO for their Front Office operations in ERCOT the following year. This was the beginning of an ongoing partnership. Adapt2 has since delivered functionality to support transactions in the United Kingdom as well as enhanced settlements capabilities in ERCOT through ERCOT 727 Reporting.

GOALS, CHALLENGES, & KEY FINDINGS:
When Just Energy initially met with Adapt2 Solutions, they were looking for assistance with invoice reconciliation and allocation across multiple calendar months. The primary goal was to align costs associated with monthly loads and revenues associated with electricity used by retail customers. At the time, this was managed through spreadsheets. In only five months, Adapt2 was able to provide back office and settlements functionality for PJM, ERCOT, NYISO, and ISO-NE. The settlement reports have provided new insight into data trends and enabled Just Energy to improve their cost estimates. According to the Director of Settlements and Mid-Office, Just Energy immediately realized the value of the Adapt2 application suite and understood that their business goals could not be supported in a timely manner through the previous manual processes. Overall, Adapt2 has consistently met the expectations of Just Energy.
“Adapt2 ISO enables quick and easy transparency to the most granular level of ISO settlements. This allows Just Energy to efficiently and effectively use this data to calibrate models and explain results of operations.” -Levent Tosun, Director of Settlements and Mid-Office
