About Norlys Energy Trading

Norlys Energy Trading A/S was founded in May 2020 and owned by Norlys Holding A/S and Eurowind Energy A/S The company is based in the Northern part of Denmark in the city of Aalborg.

We are in the process of building a solid and automatized organisation with an efficient platform for energy trading and aim to streamline the handling of renewable energy in both Denmark and the rest of Europe.

We strive to become one of the top European players in electricity and gas trading and to be one of the frontrunners of the green energy transition.

As the energy sector is getting “greener”, more complex than ever, and new solutions emerge everywhere, we have chosen to be an active part of and significant contributor to a sustainable future.

Allan Kaufmann, Head of IT Development at Norlys Energy Trading, said:

“We welcome the first deployment of our entire platform into production and can officially state that Norlys Energy Trading is now an operating trading company. This first go-live will probably be the largest and most important deployment we ever face since all our different systems and components (that together represent our world class trading platform) now are combined and running.

It´s quite amazing to see how much we have achieved working from home! We have established very close collaboration with our various counterparts and especially with Previse Systems, who have proven to be a very flexible and high performing partner.

Asbjørn Hansen, Managing Director at Previse Systems, said:

“At Previse Systems, we are very proud of this first result of our partnership with Norlys Energy Trading. Thanks to an efficient and close collaboration of the project teams – of course entirely remotely as mandated by the circumstances – we were able to not only fulfil a very demanding project schedule, but even to increase the project scope and deliver more functionality than originally planned.

We were able to demonstrate the strength of our concepts for example in the core success criteria of time to market and performance – the combination of our innovative data management approach with the utilisation of advanced Azure cloud services and the serverless technology provided by Microsoft allows new markets to be onboarded quickly and valuation runtime to be all but independent of the number of trades to be valued.

We are excited to support Norlys Energy Trading on their journey and look forward to a continuous stream of further successful releases over the coming months.”
