PEMC to facilitate a more transparent electricity market with MISNet’s data distribution and analytics solution

The PEMC and MISNet team at the contract signing last April 29, 2014.

The Philippine Electricity Market Corporation (PEMC) signs an agreement with Filipino technology consulting company MISNet for a data distribution and analytics project.

PEMC is the governing arm of the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM). With this undertaking, PEMC seeks to enhance transparency and competitiveness in the electricity market for the Philippines.

WESM is a venue for trading electricity as a commodity. The establishment of WESM was mandated by the Department of Energy to ensure that generation is balanced with the ever-changing demand for electricity.

To help PEMC drive this effort for WESM, MISNet will design and deploy a central platform for data provision, market analysis, and reporting. MISNet brings into the project the domain expertise and knowledge in data management, warehousing, and analytics. Using MISNet’s data warehousing solution and powered by Tableau business intelligence, the resulting information, dashboards, and reports will be available for consumption by WESM members, in a format that is easy to access and understand.

Robinson Descanzo, Vice President for Corporate Planning and Communications of PEMC, says, “PEMC’s mission is to achieve the highest standard of self-governance and market operations in the competitive electricity market. This can be achieved through a fair and visible trading environment. We initiated this business development and external services project in hopes of ensuring a greater level of transparency to our customers, stakeholders, and the public.”

Alex Clarin, President of MISNet, says, “By providing the infrastructure, the expertise, and technology tools, we are honored to support PEMC’s mission that will benefit many Filipinos.”
