  • 1. this is the new energy economy.
  • 2. Renewable energy. Energy deregulation. Carbon emissions. Green footprint. Today, everything is energy. It’s a complex ecosystem where we balance our growing demand for energy with a goal of sustainability. It’s about governments deregulating supply and navigating emerging cap-and-trade systems. It’s about businesses taking responsibility for carbon emissions. It’s about a new generation of leaders applying 21st century processes and technologies to meet the new millennia’s energy goals. It’s about knowing that how we respond to climate change will determine what kind of planet we have for generations to come. Just as energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress. ~Ted Levitt, Economist and Harvard Business School Professor Emeritus IMAGE © NASA HTTP://VISIBLEEARTH.NASA.GOV
  • 3. this is world energy.
  • 4. sparking a powerful marketplace.
  • 5. Deregulation has reshaped the way utilities, governments and businesses procure energy. New policies guide strategic decisions in a volatile energy market. buyers and sellers must work harder to keep pace with change in the industry and optimize cost, price and compliance efforts. World Energy anticipated the opportunities that would result from deregulation. having emerged as a clear market leader in online energy procurement, World Energy provides the knowledge, experience, and technology to host win-win transactions for buyers and sellers alike. The third-party objectivity World Energy provides works in our favor. It leaves an unbiased audit trail and uses a transparent process that all vendors trust. The process invites wide participation and encourages vigorous competition. In all, it provides the best possible competitive arena for energy purchasing. ~ Senior Vice President for Wholesale and Retail Markets, Large Municipal Utility
  • 6. sparking a better way to buy energy.
  • 7. procuring energy is a complex exercise. It used to take days: issuing RFps, sourcing prices by phone, negotiating with brokers, bankers, retail energy providers and lawyers. buyers didn’t have the transparency to negotiate the best pricing or the technology to quickly respond to changing market conditions. Tracing our origins back to 1996, World Energy offers a highly efficient and effective transaction platform for the energy marketplace. Using a variety of electronic tools, including forward and reverse auctions and post-and-respond mechanisms, our exchanges create a highly liquid and transparent marketplace for our customers to transact. We support our proven, award-winning platform with deep market expertise, a rigorous end-to-end process, and exceptional data management capabilities. The purchase of energy can be a risky endeavor when you face a volatile market. World Energy’s online auction platform enabled us to purchase energy below the two- year low industry price at a time where energy costs elsewhere were rising. ~ Energy Procurement Manager, Fortune 100 Industrial Corporation
  • 8. sparking a green revolution.
  • 9. Climate change is real, and it’s changing the way we think about energy. Governments are legislating cap-and-trade policy, businesses are facing pressure to offset CO2 emissions and green producers are finding themselves with valuable green credits. It has created a new environmental commodities market, but, as with many emerging markets, the green markets suffer from a lack of consumer knowledge, market liquidity and price and product transparency. The World Green Exchange® takes the uncertainty out of environmental commodities purchases—and puts the buyer in control of the outcome. Our online exchange delivers the transparency needed so buyers can make smart purchases for their business, based on budget, time frame for purchase and tolerance for risk. I think a cap-and-trade system makes more sense. That’s why I proposed it because you can be very specific in terms of how we’re going to reduce the greenhouse gases by a particular level. Now what you have to do is you have to combine it with a hundred percent auction. ~ U.S. President Obama
  • 10. 2001 World Energy Exchange® procures electricity for the U.S. General Services Administration 2003 World Energy conducts first green auction for the Environmental Protection Agency First state client saves $5 million annually in energy costs 2004 and wins 2005 Outstanding Program Award from NASCA (National Association of State Chief Administrators) 2005 First utility saves $42 million on initial auction World Energy cited as top aggregator, broker, consultant 2006 in competitive energy markets by KEMA Initial Public Offering on the Toronto Stock Exchange 2007 Acquired Energy Gateway 2008 Selected by RGGI, Inc. to support the first cap-and-trade auctions in U.S. history on the World Green Exchange® sparking a dynamic future.
