e-Tag+ Logo

PCI’s E-Tagging solution is a functionality-rich and secure application that fully integrates with our ETRM platform to provide deal-to-tag and tag-to-deal workflows.

What Makes e-Tag+ Better?

Our e-Tagging solution is called e-Tag+ because it sets a new standard for energy tagging software. 

1. Reimagined User Experience via an intuitive, modular interface

2. Cloud-native architecture that can be deployed on a stand-alone basis

3. Integrates seamlessly with in-house or 3rd-party systems via REST API endpoints

4. Powerful, automated workflows enabled when used with other PCI software

5. Unrestricted Data Access for reporting and downstream settlements applications



e-Tag+ has been developed for day ahead/real-time traders, real-time operators, back-office staff, as well as Balancing Authority (BA) personnel, and provides an open platform for integrating with any PCI, or third-party and in-house developed applications.

Technology Advantages

PCI utilizes an agile, fast-moving approach for e-Tag+. Our energy tagging solution is a cloud native web application designed to be easily updated when new enhancements are available, or bug fixes ready. The level of nimbleness PCI achieves does not sacrifice reliability due to our rigorous automated testing procedures established over the course of many years working with dozens of clients within (and outside of) regional energy markets.

  • With cloud-native architecture, the PCI e-Tagging solution scales up easily without sacrificing system performance.  The speed of tag data processing is further maximized using the distributed databases functionality that AWS provides.
  • PCI’s E-Tagging system can be easily deployed “out-of-the-box” without excessive advanced integration or customization work.
