About

Igloo. Intelligent energy trading from European energy trading experts

Igloo is an energy trading and risk management (ETRM) platform engineered to meet the needs of traders operating in today’s European markets.

Igloo Trading Solutions, the developer of Igloo, is a leading provider of cutting-edge products and solutions for traders in these markets

With substantial experience in trading and technology at some of Europe’s largest energy trading organisations, the team behind Igloo have developed the platform with the conviction that ETRM can be done simpler, better and more cost-effectively.

The Igloo vision

The energy trading landscape is changing. Digitalization, driven by new technologies, is disintermediating access to markets and democratising the availability of data for new and incumbent players alike. As a result, volumes traded are increasing, being transacted electronically and in higher frequency than ever before.

Against this backdrop, our core belief is that the ETRM technology should be smarter, faster and equally accessible to all.

Energy transition and digitalisation are fundamentally changing the energy supply chain and traded markets. Old business models and technology no longer support new ways of working. We want to disrupt the ETRM vendor sector by offering modern, leading-edge functionality that works. Energy trading is changing - that’s why at Igloo we believe in intelligent energy trading
