ERTH Business Technologies Inc. Continues to Provide Excellence in the Ontario Electricity Market


Toronto, Ontario, April 5, 2012  ERTH Business Technologies Inc. (ERTH), a leading provider of solutions and services to the energy and utility sectors, celebrates its second consecutive year of 100% system availability for Ontario’s Hub Infrastructure. This milestone was achieved by the exemplary team that developed, supports and operates this and other mission critical systems.
ERTH Business Technologies Inc. is the only private entity in North America that provides critical data clearinghouse services to the electricity market. ”With over 375 million XML-based transactions processed since market opening, over a terabyte of online transaction data and overall downtime measured in minutes since April 2002, we are the largest and most reliable system of its kind”, says Gary Michor, President & Chief Operating Officer of ERTH Business Technologies Inc.
The Hub enables the secure transfer of meter, billing and settlement transactions for both distributors and retailers in the energy sector. Capable of processing tens of thousands of transactions per minute, and hosted in a fully redundant and fault-tolerant environment, this enterprise-class energy market solution is ready to provide the service quality, performance and reliability levels needed to meet emerging smart grid system requirements. “Our system architecture was successfully deployed in a market opening scenario where 17% of the entire Ontario market was enrolled by retailers within three days of opening” says Tim Fry, Chief Technology Officer. The system retains all transaction records dating back to market open and makes them immediately available to market participants without any need to revert to archival storage systems.    
In a rapidly changing industry, ERTH’s ten year track record of commitment to ensuring our clients receive the most reliable, efficient and cost effective solutions to their most critical business needs clearly demonstrates the superior strengths and market knowledge held by our team of development, support and infrastructure operations personnel.
