Today, the energy industry is a vast network of diverse market participants producing, transporting and trading energy. Each energy company is challenged to manage cash flow across multiple commodities, assets, and regions.


The industry settles billions of dollars of wholesale energy transactions using emails, spreadsheets, faxes, and phone calls. These tools and processes are used by thousands of settlement departments each one working to meet tight cash flow deadlines.


Working with key industry participants, Aquilon has built the Energy Settlement Network® (ESN®) to automate energy settlements using a collaborative, cloud-based platform.
