Triple Point Technology, the leading global supplier of cross-industry software platforms for the supply, trading, marketing and movement of commodities, announced today that ArcLight Energy Marketing, LLC (“AEM”) has selected Triple Point’s Commodity XL™ to trade, manage risk and schedule physical and financial gas and power. In addition, AEM will use recently released Commodity XL Xchange™ to straight-through process trades with the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE).

“ArcLight Energy Marketing searched the market for a complete end-to-end, physical and financial solution for multiple commodities on a single platform, and after a thorough review of competing systems, Triple Point clearly proved itself the number one choice,” said Michael Settlage, AEM’s director of infrastructure and portfolio optimization. “In addition, Triple Point’s Quick Start™ program enables us to deploy the solution in eight weeks and begin capitalizing on market opportunities in the shortest time possible.”

The Commodity XL deployment for AEM is the latest in a sustained series of major contract wins for Triple Point in the global power and gas sectors. Triple Point’s notable power clients include: Alliant Energy, ARCIM, BG, Cinergy, City of Anaheim, GUVNL, Highland Energy, Lehman Brothers, Macquarie Bank, Old Lane, OXY, PTC, UBS and Westar Energy.

“There’s a good reason why after conducting a thorough search of the market, all these companies continually recognize that Triple Point solutions provide the most value for their operations,” said Peter F. Armstrong, president and CEO of Triple Point Technology. “We have engineered – and repeatedly and rapidly deployed – the only trading, risk and supply chain solution that can handle all commodities across any and all geographies on a single, real-time, next-generation platform.”
