New European Energy Trading using Hermes ebMS and ebXML

The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and enerbility software gmbh of Vienna, Austria, have announced today that the open source ebXML message service handler, Hermes, has been integrated in the electronic confirmation matching system - "enerbility 2.0".

The enerbility 2.0 is the second generation of an ECM-system developed for the over-the-counter trading in the European energy industry. It is in use at major energy trading companies in Europe like E.ON, ATEL, Statkraft and APT.

To comply with the industry demand for ebXML, enerbility went for Hermes after extended testing of available tools. "Today’s Hermes is also the result of contribution by developers in the open-source community around the world. I’m very pleased to see Hermes being chosen as the messaging gateway to facilitate the energy sector,” says Dr. David Cheung, Director of CECID.
