Energy Software Suite

MCG Energy’s products form a dynamic and natively integrated Energy Software Suite with tools to thrive in wholesale and retail energy markets. Our applications can be used individually or together as a complete energy software solution. Native integration enables MCG Energy applications to communicate with each other out of the box, greatly reducing the cost and risk of integration for a comprehensive solution. Our customers can add new MCG Energy applications to enhance their existing MCG solutions with little or no cost to implement.

MCG Energy specializes in hosted solutions in our NIST SP 800-53 r4 Mod level compliant Private Cloud, which is included in our annual third-party SOC and NIST auditing. We are now enhancing security and compliance as we prepare for FedRAMP authorization of our hosting facilities and applications. MCG Energy maintains its systems and hardware so our hosted customers can fully focus on their business.

MCG Energy solutions are integrated with all North American ISOs and RTOs. One of the many advantages of working with MCG is our standard Software Assurance guarantee – MCG applications are kept up-to-date with market system changes for all customers at no additional charge. This means that changes required to our solutions due to specification changes in e-Tagging, OASIS, or market changes are all included at no extra charge.
